Thanks to everyone who participated in the “Praying with Dreamers- #Faith4Dream” week! Together we issued over 2,000 calls and emails to Congress to urge them to pass the bipartisan Dream Act of 2017 and to tell them that we believe Dreamers are a blessing to our communities. Here’s what else we did:
- We prayed for Dreamers in our own personal devotions and in community during Sunday worship.
- We shared videos on social media telling why we are praying and advocating for Dreamers.
- We marched in our communities to spread the message that immigrants are a blessing.
- We encouraged faith leaders to sign letters that were delivered to their representatives.
Here’s our message: It is time for Congress to recognize the dignity of Dreamers and provide a long-term solution for them to remain in the United States.
Let’s use this momentum to continue to speak up until the bill is passed!
