ACTION ALERT: Call on Representative Luis Gutierrez to Free the DREAM!
Thursday, June 3, 2010
The Dream is Coming

Today, immigrant youth, their friends, their families, and community members will rally outside of Congressman Luis Gutierrez’s office and urge him to support the DREAM Act as a stand-alone bill.

As one of this country’s leaders in the fight for immigrant rights, we want Congressman Luis Gutierrez to champion the DREAM Act as a stand-alone bill to set a positive standard for reform based on education, hard work, and fairness.

Tell Congressman Gutierrez that for immigrant youth, failure is not an option! We need his commitment, conviction, and his leadership to free the dreams of thousands of immigrant youth and make the DREAM Act a reality before the end of the year.

Board Member of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Rosi Carrasco, states, “I am very proud of all the youth fighting for the DREAM Act. As parents, our children’s fight is our own fight.”

Founding member of the Immigrant Youth Justice League Tania Unzueta states, “If our friends and allies can risk arrest in acts of civil disobedience, and undocumented students can face the ultimate fear of deportation to show their commitment to passing DREAM Act, then it is time for our community and leaders to ask themselves what they are willing to do.”

Call now! We can’t wait! (202) 225-8203

“Hi, my name is _______ and I’m calling to ask Congressman Gutierrez to support the DREAM Act as a stand-alone bill. Immigrant families need a victory this year- failure is not an option. Thanks!”
