Reform Movement Call-in Day Information

Join our efforts to pass a clean Dream Act by participating in a national Reform Movement Call-in Day. On November 6th, we are calling upon the entire community to call their elected officials to make our support for the Dream Act known. Please join us by making three calls on Monday – one to your Representative, and one to each of your two Senators.

Please use the scripts below to call your members of Congress, either asking them to cosponsor and call for immediate passage of a clean Dream Act of 2017 or thanking them for their co-sponsorship of the Dream Act of 2017.

Call-in Instructions:

  1. Text RAC4Dream to 877877.
  2. When prompted, enter your email address and ZIP code.* By providing your email address, you agree to be signed up for the United We Dream and Religious Action Center email lists.
  3. You will then receive a call and be automatically connected to your Representative in the House.
  4. Shortly after you hang up, you will receive a text message with another number to call. Call that number to be automatically connected to your Senator.
  5. Once you finish your conversation with one Senator's office, hang up and call that same number again to be automatically connected with your other Senator.

*Please note: This call tool uses your zip code to connect you with your Representative. If you are connected with someone who is not your Representative, please call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to the correct office.

Call-in Script 1: For Members of Congress that are NOT Co-Sponsors of the Dream Act

  • Hello, I am a constituent and Reform Jew from (Congregation Name) in (Town/City Name).
  • I’m calling to express my concern for the 800,000 immigrant youth in danger of detention and deportation as a result of the administration’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
  • Jewish history and tradition demands that we welcome the stranger and compels us to work for a just immigration system.
  • Congress must act now to protect the youth affected by the end of DACA. The bipartisan Dream Act of 2017 would grant DACA recipients permanent residence status and provide a pathway to citizenship. I urge the Senator/Representative co-sponsor and call for immediate passage of a clean Dream Act.
  • Does Senator/Representative (Last name) support immediate passage of the Dream Act?
  • Thank you for your time.

 

Call-in Script 2: For Members of Congress that ARE Co-Sponsors of the Dream Act

  • Hello, I am a constituent and Reform Jew from (Congregation Name) in (Town/City Name).
  • I’m calling to thank the Senator/Representative for co-sponsoring the bipartisan Dream Act.
  • I’m concerned about the 800,000 immigrant youth in danger of detention and deportation as a result of the administration’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
  • Jewish history and tradition demands that we welcome the stranger and compels us to work for a just immigration system.
  • I thank Senator/Representative (Last Name) again for his/her support for this vulnerable community, and urge the Senator/Representative to call on Congressional leadership to bring a clean Dream Act to a vote immediately. Thank you for your time.
