Your Voice is Needed
To support 800,000 young people
who depend on DACA
We have reached a critical moment.
As you know, the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will expire on March 5, 2018 unless Congress acts to make the DACA protections permanent. In order to meet that deadline, it is urgent that the U.S. House of Representatives pass legislation before the end of 2017.
Now is the time for you to contact your Representative in the House. There are only 12 work days scheduled left for Congress to act in 2017. Urge your Representatives right now to tell the House Leadership — Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — to do the right thing and make the DACA protections permanent.
Our elected officials know what they need to do. They need to know you care — and that millions of voters care also.
This is an urgent moment. If we do not reach out to our House members, nobody else is going to. The future of more than 800,000 people depends on it. These are the people that live next door. They go to work and we sit next to them at church on Sunday. May God bless you for your concern for these DACA recipients and their families.

HOW TO TAKE ACTION
STEP 1: Find your representative online by clicking below and putting in your zip code or address.
STEP 2: Go to your representative’s website and contact his or her office. An email is fine, but a personal phone call is much better.
STEP 3: Deliver this simple message to your Representative:
You are a voter, a constituent and you care deeply about the DACA program.
You want your representative to tell House leaders it is urgent to make the DACA protections permanent by Christmas.
STEP 4: Share the link to this page on all of your social media channels and tell everyone you know to do the same thing.
