Tell President Obama: We Need Relief for All!
On June 30th, President Obama signaled to the nation that he is ready to take executive action to keep families together. After years of fighting for humane and real immigration reform, this is welcome news for our communities, who hope that Presidential relief can provide an end to deportations and the ability to work legally.
But we cannot take any relief for granted. The current humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied children coming to the border – and to New York - has triggered an anti-immigrant backlash that could delay and completely undo any major Administrative Relief. We must act NOW and we must act aggressively to ensure the President makes good on his promise and that he provides the BROADEST possible Administrative Relief for our communities.
Can we count on you? Here’s what you can do TODAY to join us in our new #ALLIn4Relief Campaign:
TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA: We Need Relief for All!
CALL: (866) 473-5915
Tell Him: "I'm from [City, State, Community], I urge President Obama to keep his promise to fix as much of the immigration system as possible. The President has the authority to alleviate the suffering of our community. We ask him to provide the broadest possible administrative relief to our immigrant communities NOW!"
…And, COMING SOON:
#ALLIn4Relief TOWN HALLS
Help plan a Town Hall in August with your Congressional Representative to ensure he/she will take an aggressive stance for and with our families! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
DIGITAL PHOTO ACTION
