This advocacy toolkit is geared for college and university campuses, including students, faculty, and staff to share resources and opportunity for advocacy around H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act of 2019, legislation introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would establish a roadmap to citizenship for upwards of 2.3 million Dreamers and Temporary Protected Status & Deferred Enforced Departure holders. The House will markup H.R. 6 and vote on the bill in May of 2019. You can use the above links to navigate the toolkit. Below, we provide resources, information about the toolkit, and the national call-in day.
