With members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate returning to Congress after their August Recess, it is critical that lawmakers recognize that investing in care and citizenship is necessary for our country to truly build back better.
Take action this week to welcome back congress:
On Tuesday, Sep. 21, 2021 at 12pm ET, immigrants, allies, and community members from from 31 states and the District of Columbia will march to the U.S Capitol to welcome Congress back to their legislative session and educate them on issues of care infrastructure, citizenship and the climate.
If you are in the DC area and want to attend the march, learn more and get the event details.
