We just received this urgent message from the New York DREAM Acct Coalition. Please call right now!
“Dear Colleagues: As you are probably aware, the New York State Dream Coalition has been working for the past few years to secure passage of the NYS Dream Act, which would give young undocumented immigrants access to state tuition assistance, so they can afford a college education, follow their dreams and help build a strong economy for all. But time may be running out in 2014 for Dream advocates, and our State Senators need to hear from us ASAP! Please take a moment to send a text or make a call:
1. Text DREAM to 877877 to contact your senator and ask him/her to support the #NYDREAMAct, or
2. Call (888) 833-7428 to contact your senator and ask him/her to support the #NYDREAMAct. (The Operator will ask you for your address, identify your Senator,and them transfer you to his/her office.)
