Action Alert: Move NYS DREAM forward!
The New York Immigration Coalition’s Immigrants’ Day of Action in Albany last week was a resounding success—1,300 people, 94 organizations, 70 legislative meetings, and amazing energy and movement on our agenda.
Today, let’s leverage the momentum we generated last week by calling in to push the DREAM!
Right now the most strategic opportunity for us to move DREAM forward is by having it included in the Governor's budget, which will be decided in the next week.
Call the Governor’s office and urge the Governor to include DREAM—and specifically an expanded Tuition Assistance Program—in his budget!
CALL TO DREAM! PLEASE take 2 minutes to call the Governor!
Suggested script: "Hi I’m calling to urge Governor Cuomo to include DREAM, including the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) provision, in his budget so that DREAM becomes reality! My address and zip code is _________”
