By Mike Hersh for Donna, Dan, Mike F., Janis, Amos, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Judy, and Dr. Bill, your PDA National Team
Last month, over the holidays, six courageous DREAMers and an ally launched a jail strike and a hunger strike. Tomorrow, Friday, January 26, they will have their day in court. We want to pack the courtroom and the street with supporters. Also, we’re carrying on the struggle nationwide.
- In the DC area, please join the effort! We’re meeting in front of the H. Carl Moultrie Courthouse, 500 Indiana Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001 at 8:45am EST tomorrow (Friday). Closest Metro Stop is Judiciary Square.
- If you’re planning to attend or even if you can’t make it to DC, contact Dan O’Neal at email@example.com and he’ll get you involved in actions across the country. If you can do anything to help, please let Dan know.
- If you can’t be active in the street, then call your congressperson and tell them we don’t want any stupid wall. Clean Dream Act! And please help us fund this campaign with a donation now.
It’s been a long struggle to secure safety, peace of mind, and the American Dream for so many. Thanks to efforts like this and the solidarity events we held nation wide we were able to radically influence key senate votes. Just a few weeks ago, we had 3 Senators willing to vote no on any spending bill that didn’t include a clean Dream Act. We had dozens of votes last Friday. After that, we saw a severely disappointing cave in, but we’re not giving up or going away.
We need your help now to push the Congress to enact the Dream Act into law. We expect they’ll be voting again soon. Please join our huge coalition effort as we tell our Senators #DreamActNow!Contribute now to help us provide travel stipends for Dreamers and others who wish to come to D.C. Please do all you can now for us to make history.

P.S. The cave in on the shutdown shows we need a more progressive Congress. Dig deeply now and donate generously to help PDA elect progressives to Congress. Joining the Win 2018 Sustainer Team at $20.18 per month or giving any amount will help us find and support the next generation of Progressive champions. You’ll barely notice $20.18 (or any other amount) per month. Whatever you can afford to give, that regular contribution will make all the difference!
