Campaign to Collect Thousands of Postcards Targeting Members of Congress
Washington, DC - The Reform Immigration FOR America Campaign is proud to partner with the "Home of the Holidays" campaign in an effort to push Congress to action on comprehensive immigration reform. Today, faith leaders across America gathered to launch a major escalation of the faith community's efforts to press Congress into addressing this issue. Besides major events in four states, "Home for the Holidays" will collect 250,000 postcards targeting Members of Congress. Reform Immigration FOR America will be contributing 12,000 postcards to this effort.
"People of faith will be crucial to our efforts to finally pass comprehensive immigration reform and we are thrilled to be working so closely with them. People of faith recognize the moral obligation posed by our broken immigration system and their leadership is welcome. Their effort brings together many diverse faiths, the scale is unprecedented, and the effort is timely. Our failed immigration system is keeping thousands of immigrant families apart - and not just for the holidays. America needs comprehensive immigration reform that is fair and humane, and finally resolves this issue for the American people once and for all," said Rich Stolz, campaign manager for the Reform Immigration FOR America Campaign.
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN: The Reform Immigration FOR America campaign is a coalition of more than 600 faith, labor, business, progressive, and immigration reform groups that have joined together to get comprehensive immigration reform passed.
