It's time for our leaders in Congress to choose the values and ideals that this country holds dear. They must stand for those that are working hard, paying taxes and contributing to our society on their path to American citizenship. Tell your Senators and Representatives they must pass a clean DREAM Act to protect, not turn away, the 800,000-young people who were brought to the United States as children.
Submit a Comment on the Census Today!
Right NOW, the public has the ability to impact the debate through public comments to the Department of Commerce. We must communicate to Secretary Ross that the American public wants an accurate and fair Census. Including a citizenship question on the Census undermines the participation of eligible persons and threatens the overall Census process that is vital to our democracy.
Tell Congress to Pass Sensible Gun Laws
It’s time to stop the violence. Legislation with common sense solutions to prevent gun violence will protect our children, our citizens and help restore our public confidence.
Urge Congress to Support the Automatic Voter Registration Act
The League is proud to support legislation that enhances access for eligible voters in our elections and works to modernize our electoral system. This bill will improve the accuracy of voter records, cut down on costs, modernize outdated registration systems while supporting implementation in states across the country.
Stop Voter Suppression
Across the country, there has been a concerted effort in many states to stop some voters from voting, or to make it much harder for them to participate. Legislators and election officials have purged existing voters from the rolls, made cuts to early voting, reduced polling places, put in place strict voter photo ID laws and levied onerous voter registration restrictions.
