Drivers Licenses For All

Behind the backs of the people they serve and closed doors, Wisconsin republicans, moved to remove drivers licenses and tuition equity for immigrants, the repeal of Act 10, and other important items from our state's budget. What do you do when the working-class, Black, brown and immigrant communities are under attack? Stand up! Fight back!

Don't let anyone tell you you're too young to make a difference!

Mandeeq Abdulahi, member of Voces de la Frontera Action and YES speaks truth to power and invites you to do the same!

Call Senator Tammy Baldwin to demand she votes to include ITIN immigrants in federal relief & legalization for undocumented #essentialworkers. Find tool-kits and scripts at https://vdlf.org/we-are-home-campaign/ or send a DM if you have questions!

Katherine speaks for Freedom Together

Anything less than including ITIN immigrants in #COVID19 federal relief is inhumane and inadequate. Wisconsin Senators need to do what they were hired to do by Black, Brown and Immigrant voters!

speaking of labor....I was at work..... same problem with women's march/opposition scheduled during the work week....
Youth Empowerment Program is hosting an event called Global Youth Advancement Summit! The call for proposals for the Global Youth Advancement Summit is OPEN for people of all nationalities, aged 18–35, with innovative ideas, business ventures, and social impact initiatives. Sponsorships are available, which means we will provide a select group of delegates with roundtrip airfare, accommodations in student housing facilities, and transportation to and from the Lansing or Detroit airports!
Add your name to stay involved in the fight for a clean Dream Act Democrats just voted with Republicans to reopen the government without providing permanent protected status for the 800,000 recipients of DACA, otherwise known as Dreamers. It’s up to us to help pass a clean Dream Act that doesn’t allow funding for additional immigration detention centers and ensures no further criminalization of immigrant communities. We will continue to uplift the actions and share the stories of the Dreamers who are spearheading this campaign. We are calling our Representatives every single day, supporting local actions, and sharing the stories of Dreamers because the 800,000 undocumented youth living in the United States deserve permanent protection. To stay updated, follow #OurDream on social media.
Wisconsin uniting for a Clean Dream Act, please sign this letter on behalf of all of us asking Paul Ryan to take action now
