    Urge Congress to adopt a clean DREAM Act

    DACA201801145.png

    On Thursday, the President turned a bipartisan meeting on immigration into an opportunity to express his racist and derogatory views on countries with severe economic challenges and majority black populations. He did this on the anniversary of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010, just days before Martin Luther King Day and while thousands of DREAMERs fear for their futures.

    If you are fed up with the news from the past several days, take action. Urge members of Congress to denounce the President's statements and to pass a clean DREAM Act NOW.

    Women's March - Rome

    IT'S TIME TO GET READY...Women’s March Rome 2018 will take place on Saturday, January 20th, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    This year, we join together with the women of the #MeToo movement and take a stand. The time is now.

    Women’s March Rome brings together people of all ages, colors, religions, genders, and sexual orientations to celebrate equality, diversity, and progress. On January 20th, we will stand up to the patriarchy and announce our collective vision that, by telling our stories and using our VOTE, we can create a world that supports and represents our intersecting identities, social justice, and the human rights issues that impact us all. 

    **First, we MARCH, then we VOTE!** #PowerToThePolls
