Senator Chuck Schumer of New York has said he will introduce a comprehensive immigration reform bill early this year. A window is opening to pass the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA). Please send a personalized appeal to your Senators to stand with our families at this critical moment.
Please take action now to contact your Senators to urge them to tell Schumer: comprehensive immigration reform is not comprehensive if it does not include UAFA and LGBT families!
Even if you have called and sent a letter before, please send one again! The time for members of Congress to hear that this is important to their constituents is NOW.
Step 1 – Write both of your Senators.
Step 2 – Call both of your Senators.
* After you send your letter, please also call your Senators’ offices.
* Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your Senator (you can tell them your state and they can tell you who your Senators are).
* Tell your Senator:
“Senator Schumer has said he will introduce a comprehensive immigration reform bill early this year. I urge Senator _______ [your Senator’s name] to tell Senator Schumer to support inclusion of gay and lesbian families and the Uniting American Families Act in his bill. Comprehensive immigration reform is not comprehensive unless it includes ALL families.”
* Then call the Switchboard again and repeat with your other Senator.
