The Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance’s (APALA) Call to Arms: “Tomorrow We Fight” for a Clean DREAM Act

Received this via email from our friends over at APALA (Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance):

Tomorrow, we fight.

We’re mobilizing over 120 Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) immigrant youth and leaders from across the country to demand that the passing of a clean DREAM Act become Congress’s top priority before the end of the year. We are so close to passing a clean DREAM Act, but we need your help.

If you are not in the DC area tomorrow, you can still take action to fight for our immigrant community. Please pick up your phones and call your members of Congress using our line at 844-551-6921 or even send a digital postcard telling Congress to pass a clean DREAM Act.

Sample script:

“Hi! My name is ____, and I live in (city/state). As a constituent of Rep. __, I want to share my support for undocumented youth and communities. I urge Rep. ____ to co-sponsor the DREAM Act and demand that House leadership move the DREAM Act as it is written to a vote immediately.”

In Solidarity,

Alvina Yeh
APALA Executive Director

P.S. Please help us sustain our work in this fight for our immigrant community. Consider making a tax-deductible $16 donation today — one dollar for every 1,000 AAPI recipients who have benefited from DACA!

The Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), AFL-CIO was founded in 1992 as the first and only national organization for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) union members to advance worker, immigrant, and civil rights.
