Immigration Summer — Important Dates
Congress is on break from their duties in Washington, DC during the “August Recess”. Nevada’s Members of Congress will be home in Nevada, and we need you at town halls, visiting your Member, calling their office and writing letters to the editor. The time is NOW for immigration reform — poll after poll, no matter the demographic, Nevadans overwhelmingly agree: our immigration system is broken, it needs to be fixed this year with a pathway to citizenship that keeps families together!
We’ll be adding more events as they come up. Contact Astrid if you want to volunteer: firstname.lastname@example.org 702-791-1965
