Advocacy Day: May 21, 2013
Join CLINIC and the Justice for Immigrants Campaign (JFI) for a day of Congressional advocacy on behalf of the immigrants we serve across the country. Advocacy Day will take place on Tuesday May 21, 2013 as part of CLINIC’s 16th Annual Convening. We will start the day with a preparatory session which will include how-to advocacy tips and a review of talking points and messaging. Then we will head to the Hill where you will meet with your Senators and Representatives to let them know how important immigration reform is to their constituents. We know from experience that hearing directly from constituents has a powerful effect on the decisions made by our members of Congress. Take advantage of this opportunity to advocate for those who need immigration reform to pass!
