Where:   Women's Center
Type:   Service Day

  Stop by for fifteen minutes to call legislators and urge them to support IVAWA and the DREAM Act. Making calls has a huge impact and is really quick and easy!  

Based on the election results, we need to get these bills passed during the lame duck Congress so that they will not have to be re-introduced in a potentially less favorable Congress next year. NOW is the time for activism!
The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA) will help the US create a comprehensive, integrated approach to addressing violence against women worldwide. The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act will provide conditional legal status for undocumented youth who enter the country before age sixteen and work toward a college degree or serve in the military.
Even if you have never called your legislators before, we will give you a quick training then you can take action to promote human rights!
