Protect Immigrant Families with Your Voice!

So much is at stake this year. The outcome of the 2020 election will either mean an America that deports millions of our friends and families to countries some have never known, or an America that is welcoming and works for all people, no matter where they were born, the color of their skin, or how much money they have. It's up to each one of us to ensure that all people are respected, safe, and valued in America. It's time to take it to the polls.

Join the I Am America 2020 digital challenge to help elect leaders who will protect immigrant families.

The following action steps are your guide to taking simple, meaningful action at home and in your community to stand up for immigrant families. Once you've completed all 8 actions below, you'll receive this amazing I Am America 2020 T-shirt for free.

5. Call Congress
In progress

Tell your Member of Congress to protect all workers, regardless of immigration status.

COVID-19 relief bills have left out millions of immigrants, many who are working on the frontlines. Your elected official needs to hear from you. Demand that they include all workers, regardless of immigration status, in the next COVID-19 relief bill.

Call Your Member of Congress
866-412-6857

Here are some instructions:

Call the number above. You'll hear a recording from our organizers and then you will be connected to your Member of Congress' office. You can use the script below:

Many immigrants are on the frontlines of this pandemic, yet millions have been left out from health and economic relief to help get them through this crisis. I'm asking [YOUR SENATOR'S NAME] to work quickly to pass the HEROES Act to be sure immigrant families are included in this next stimulus package.
