We traveled to D.C.
We lobbyied on Capitol Hill in December 2017. We were able to meet face to face with Congressman Ruben Gallego, Congressman Raul Grijalva & Congressman Tom O'Halleran. We were able to meet with staffers from the offices of Senator John McCain, Senator Jeff Flake, Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, Congressman Andy Biggs, Congressman David Schweikert, Congressman Paul Gosar & Congressman Trent Franks. We even got in a meeting with Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson!
In these meetings we advocated for Representatives & Senators to not vote for a CR(Continuing Resolution) if it did not include a clean dream act. In each meeting DREAMers shared their stories with our elected officials conveying why it is so urgent that we pass the #DreamActNow. While the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Senate failed to act on a solution for DREAMers we have continued to fight in Arizona.
We've continued meetings in AZ
