12월 12일, 미 연방하원은 가족을 보호하는 이민개혁을 투표에 부치지도 않은 채 올해의 회기를 마칠 것입니다. 지금, 여러분의 참여가 필요합니다. 이민개혁에 대한 염원이 점점 거세지고 있는 지금, 우리들은 날마다 더 강력해지고 있고 오늘 당장 이민개혁이 하원에서 통과되기를 바라고 있다고 전합시다!
1. 베이너 의장에게 전화를 걸어주세요.
Fast for Families — a national action highlighting the moral urgency of immigration reform — launched on November 12. Thursday, December 12, will mark the 31st day of this campaign. Tens of thousands across the nation have fasted. Your prayers and solidarity fasts have strengthened and galvanized the immigration reform movement.
Now we need your help. On December 12, the House of Representatives will conclude their calendar year. But it has not acted yet to keep immigrant families together. Let’s tell our leaders that we are growing stronger each day and we expect them to act now. Here are 3 easy actions that you can take today!
1. Call Speaker John Boehner
Pick up your cell phone and dial (202)-225-0600 and let him know that you support the Fast for Families, stand with families, and are watching him closely. Tell him: “As a member of the Asian American community, I am calling upon you, Speaker Boehner, to have a heart for immigrant families and put a bill to the floor for a vote!”
2. Snap a Photo of Your Actions and Support
Send us a picture or video message of your support those who are fasting and for immigration reform. Also, would you consider fasting for a meal on Thursday, December 12?
