Urge your U.S. Representative to Cosponsor the Global Child Thrive Act (H.R.4864)
For children who have seen the devastation of war in their communities or been forced to flee their homes due to violence, their development is impacted severely due to the trauma and stress. You can help lead the way to a solution that helps children overseas not only to survive but thrive.
The Global Child Thrive Act will mandate integrating Early Childhood Development activities into U.S. government-funded international programming for children. Early Childhood Development activities include helping children to play, exploring colors, music, and nurturing care from parents and caregivers.
Ask your Senator to Support the Dream Act of 2019 (S. 874)
From November 2019 until Spring 2020, while the U.S. Supreme Court deliberates, it is vital that we encourage Congress to act to provide DACA recipients with a path to citizenship. As the House passed H.R. 6 which includes a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, we ask that you turn your attention to your Senators and urge them to stand in support of young adult immigrants by supporting legislative protection for DACA recipients generally and the Dream Act of 2019, S. 874, specifically.
While the House passed its version of the Dream Act, we ask you to stand in solidarity with immigrants and their families by sending a message to your Senators and request that they support S.874, the Dream Act of 2019.
