Sneak peek: Why immigration reform is our fight

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

Last night we reached a milestone for immigration reform when a key Senate committee voted 13-5 to send the immigration bill to a vote on the Senate floor.

I'm a MoveOn member from Florida and have been organizing actions with MoveOn for the last three years. I recently joined the MoveOn Immigration Reform Ambassador team because I firmly believe that immigration reform is a human rights issue.   

We now have an opportunity to take action locally and nationally to pass comprehensive immigration reform. There are no guarantees, so to do that, we need to inspire more people to join us.

Earlier today I got a chance to take a sneak peek at a brand new video featuring MoveOn members talking personally about LGBTQ families, border security, and human dignity—and about why immigration reform is everyone's fight.

Our friends at Cuéntame did a great job creating this video. I don't want to give away too much about the video. But the first word that came to my mouth was FANTASTIC! 

Can you watch this three-minute video right now, share the video with family, friends, and social networks, and then call your senators? Click here to watch the video:

The video features two fellow MoveOn Ambassadors: Yuny Parada and Amos Lim. Yuny is an immigrant from El Salvador, and Amos is an immigrant from Singapore, and both are fighting for immigration reform. Amos has been organizing with other MoveOn members to make sure LGBTQ families are treated equally in our immigration system.

After you've watched the video, call 202-224-3121 (this number is also provided in the video) and ask to be connected to Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. Let them know you want them to support immigration reform.

Then, please report your call by clicking here:
Thanks for all you do.
