ACTION ALERT: We need your help to pass the Uniting American Families Act — RIGHT NOW

We need your help — RIGHT NOW — to pass the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA).

On Thursday afternoon, Congressman Nadler will be reintroducing UAFA in the House of Representatives.

This critically important bill will immediately end the discrimination our families face under current immigration laws and positively impact every family, regardless of where they live.

To pass UAFA, however, your Representative and Senators need to hear from you. The phone number to call is: (202) 225-3121.

Please ask your family and friends to call as well; it will only take a few minutes to say:

“Hi, my name is ___________, I live at (street address and city) and I am your constituent.

I am calling to ask Represenative/Senator ______ to cosponsor the Uniting American Families Act because it allows gay and lesbian families to stay together. No American should have to choose between the person they love and our country.”

Call three times: ask once for your Representative and then for your two Senators. They need to hear from as many people as possible.

The phone number to call is: (202) 225-3121. Ask the switchboard operator to connect you with your Representative and then your two Senators; the operator can tell you who they are if you don’t know.

Then, if you are in the Washington, D.C. area, join Immigration Equality and Congressman Nadler for a special reintroduction event on Thursday at 1pm. Our executive director, Rachel Tiven, will join Congressman Nadler and other House leaders on the House Triangle at 1pm with our very special guests, Shirley Tan, Jay Mercado and their twin sons. The Triangle is on the southeast side of the U.S. Capitol, accessible via Independence Avenue.

Now, please take just a few minutes of your time and call your Representatives and Senators

These calls — your calls — could help make all the difference for our families.

Thank you for all that you do!
