Dear Border Advocates,
The Obama Administration and the 111th Congress will need our encouragement, and yes, our pressure, to take the next steps to build humane and accountable border policy, comprehensive immigration reform, and respect for human rights in Mexico.
The moment we've been waiting for has arrived! Are you ready to work for change?
Here are two ways to take action now!
(1) If you haven't already, please sign our petition calling on President-elect Obama to build a just U.S. policy towards Latin America and the Caribbean, and support sensible and humane approaches to the border region and immigration. We will deliver this petition to President Obama in early March. Our goal is to reach 10,000 signers.
(2) Contact your members of Congress. Click here to send an e-mail. One well-stated e-mail, or one quick phone call to their district or DC office, with many others, will move us towards the change we need. Of course, please feel free to edit with your own personal experiences and concerns.
Lastly, find out how your fellow advocates are taking action by checking out our Facebook page here.
Thanks for doing your part to bring justice to the border and Mexico!
