DREAM Act rush

So I'm sure you all know what's been going with the current DREAM Act rush going on right now and of course I had to post stuff up. What kind of supporter would I be if I didn't at least do that, even though school is going 300 mph right now. So here goes. Support, make calls, and sign the petition people. If we don't male it happen, no one will. 

1. Invite all your facebook friends to this event. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

2. Join the DREAM Act facebook cause

3. Change your profile picture to the picture of this group which says "I support the DREAM Act."

4. Send a letter to your representatives in congress and ask everyone you know to do the same using this link:

5. Sign the DREAM Act Petition:

6. Finally, if you want to be the first to know when the DREAM Act is introduced into Congress text "Justice" ("Justicia" for Spanish) to 69866. To learn more about it click here:

On Thursday, March 26, ask everyone you know to call into Congress in support of the DREAM Act.

1-800-574-4243 to be connected to your member of Congress and say something similar to the following:

"Hi! My name is ____________ and I am a student at the (your campus) and a voter in your district. I am calling in conjunction with students from across the country to urge our elected officials to support the DREAM Act amendment to expand access to higher education for 
high school graduates who were brought to the U.S. years ago as undocumented children. I support the DREAM Act because it will increase opportunities for 360,000 qualified high school graduates who are currently denied their dream to an education. 

Can I count on _(Elected Official’s Name)__ to support the DREAM Act in this session of congress? Thank you for your time and I look forward to your support."
