Sept. 21 is immigration action day

One in five essential workers is an undocumented immigrant. On Tuesday, Sept. 21, thousands of immigrants and their allies will converge in Washington, DC, to demand that Congress recognize the contributions of immigrants by ensuring a path to citizenship NOW. People from across the country will gather at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters and march to the Capitol, where they will be joined by congressional champions to demand a path to citizenship for essential workers, farm workers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, and immigrant youth. Essential workers have been there for all of us, now we need to be there for them.

Urge your senators to support an immigration process that is humane, functional, and just.
