Yesterday we joined Jews and Dreamers from across the country to occupy the Captiol and demand legislators pass a DREAM Act to protect our immigrant family. Our staff and membership were proud to be among those arrested in this historic act of civil disobedience. You can still take action today: call on your elected officials to stand for liberation, not deportation, for America’s 800,000+ Dreamers.
