Call Southern Arizona to #DefendDACA


    “This administration is considering ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which provides hope and protection for DREAMers—undocumented young immigrants who are American in fact, if not on paper.

    This would be a devastating blow to the futures of nearly 800,000 DREAMers, who are making critical contributions to our country and economy.

    Congress is facing a moral test.

    Call your representative and urge them to ask the administration to preserve DACA until there is a lasting legislative solution protecting DREAMers.

    OFA’s motto is Respect, Empower, Include, Organize. We lead with respect as a core value, and ask that all organizing work is done so with that value in mind. When participating in events like this one, you are committing to do so respectfully.”
