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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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: ColoradoFloridaGeorgiaMichiganNorth CarolinaNew HampshirePennsylvaniaWashington.
