Today’s Action: Tell Congress to improve and pass the American Families Plan!

President Biden has unveiled his $1.8 trillion American Families Plan, a historic investment in education, childcare, and paid family leave which will pay for itself within 15 years and boost our economy out of the pandemic losses while making a lifetime of positive impact for millions of families.

The package includes affordable childcare and universal preschool, free community college, strengthening our workforce of teachers and childcare workers, expanding the free school meals program to more low-income families – and much more.

It’s a good plan…and we want to make it even better! Over the next week or so, we’ll be highlighting improvements that the Congressional Progressive Caucus wants to see added!

Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them to pass the American Families Plan – but not before they include a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients, TPS holders and undocumented essential workers!

We fought Trump long and hard over protecting DACA recipients (aka “Dreamers”) and TPS holders, folks who came to our country as young children or for whom returning home is too dangerous. Now, it’s time to finish the job and close that dark chapter by solidifying their pathway to citizenship.

And, we’ve spent a year thanking and applauding for essential workers – so as we emerge from this pandemic, it’s so important to acknowledge that over five million essential workers are undocumented immigrants (including nearly a million Dreamers)! This recovery plan must include the folks who pulled us through one of the most tragic years of our nation’s history.

The American Families Plan should include a plan for all families…including those who have been denied their ‘official’ American status until now.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they include citizenship for DACA recipients, TPS holders, and undocumented essential workers in the American Families Plan!
