NATIONAL: URGENT! Need Calls To Support the DREAM Act!

University Leadership Initiative

Urgent DREAM Act Call-in Campaign

This week, US Senators will vote on the DREAM Act! If we want to make this dream a reality, we need YOUR help!

Call Your Senators on October 23rd & 24th & tell them you support the DREAM Act!

Our youth need your help! Please continue to call until the vote happens!

Texas DREAM supporters should call:

  • Senator Cornyn at (202) 224-2934
  • Senator Hutchison at (202) 224-5922

Anti-immigrant/anti-DREAM Act callers continue to flood senators' offices. Let's show that our numbers are NOT just in the rallies and take our action a step further!

What to say when you call:

My name is __________, I am calling from ____________(city, Texas) and would like to urge Senator (name of Senator) to vote in favor of the DREAM Act.

What would the DREAM Act do?

The DREAM Act is a bicameral, bipartisan proposal at the federal level that would provide a path to legalization to youth who were:

  • brought to the US before they were 16 years of age
  • have lived in the US 5 years prior to the enactment of the law
  • have stayed out of trouble
  • have graduated from a US high and
  • have been accepted or are attending a US university OR join the U.S. Military for 2 years

Please call every day until the vote happens.
