After Democrats held to their promise to demand a Dream Act for a mere three days, the government shutdown is over. Dreamers got little out of it: Senator Mitch McConnell’s “intention” to bring immigration legislation to the Senate floor, and nothing from the House or president.

That is clearly not enough. This week in Take Action Now, find out how you can demand the Dream Act. You can also help find progressive women who want to run political campaigns.

Take Action Now gives you three meaningful actions you can take each week, whatever your schedule. Sign up here to get actions like these in your inbox every Tuesday.


Call 202-224-3121 to reach your members of Congress. Tell them that every day they fail to pass the Dream Act, more immigrant youth become vulnerable to detention and deportation.


Show up for Dreamers. You can find actions organized by MoveOn here or town halls at There are also rallies today in Brooklyn and Washington, DC.
