CALL YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS

5 Calls does the research for each issue, determining which representatives are most influential for which topic, collecting phone numbers for those offices and writing scripts so you don't have to!

(Sometimes their scripts are long. Editing to 1-2 sentences is fine!) 

 

 

 

The landscape is constantly changing on  immigration issues. We encourage you to check 5calls often and call often!

THE SHOELACE PROJECT

 Why Shoelaces?

     ICE removes all shoelaces and belts
     to prevent suicide.

    Here's a link to a group that is doing
    something about this problem.

    This is a great project for a community

    or faith organization!

Action #6

How Amazon is Powering ICE

and What You Can Do

Immigrant justice organizers like Mijente and Bay Resistance are getting wise to target business interests that help run ICE infrastructure. For instance, the online mega-retailer Amazon is a key part of the conditions that make ICE raids possible, by offering the underlying database technology and facial recognition software to ICE and related agencies.

Tell Amazon to Stop Powering ICE

Amazon Alternatives provides information if you are thinking about giving up Amazon purchases and links you to a campaign to support Amazon workers' living wages as well.
