This week, faith leaders, faith organizations, and congregations are collectively lifting our voices to declare that it is past time that we, as a nation, recognize the full humanity of our immigrant neighbors and create a pathway to citizenship for all of our 11 million undocumented neighbors. As Immigrant Heritage Month comes to a close, join us in a Faith Week of Action to urge Congress and the White House to include a pathway to citizenship for essential immigrant workers and their families, Dreamers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, and farm workers in the “budget reconciliation” negotiations. Congress is considering “budget reconciliation” as a congressional mechanism to advance the administration’s jobs and infrastructure proposal — and it is critical that our undocumented community members are included.
Here are the top ways to take action this week:
- Join the Fast for Freedom on the Phones: Join a phonebanking session today at 3pm ET to make calls to Congress to urge them to include Citizenship for All in the upcoming budget bill. Register here.
- Contact Your Members of Congress: Call or email your Members of Congress to support and pass a meaningful pathway to citizenship for all 11 million undocumented community members.
- Attend Fast Forward for Citizenship: Show up at the “Fast Forward for Citizenship” event tomorrow, June 30th at 12pm ET at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation in D.C. to close out the #WeAreEssential #FastForFreedom.
- Tune into the Fast for Freedom Briefing: Hear stories from fasters, updates on Congressional movement on pathways to citizenship, and how you can take action. Register for the 1pm ET Zoom briefing, or tune into a brief Facebook Live at 4pm ET.
- Amplify Faith Voices: Faith leaders from across the country have stated that immigrants deserve citizenship now. Share the Interfaith Immigration Coalition press releases from these states on your platforms: Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Washington.
