•Call your Senators & Representatives (202-224-3121) – Urge them to cosponsor and support S.2540 & H.R.4646.

 

Sample Script: “I'm a constituent from [City, State] and I urge all Senators and Representatives to co-sponsor and support The Fair Day in Court for Kids Act. Children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are fleeing traumatizing violence and should not have to stand before an immigration judge alone. The Fair Day in Court for Kids Act would increase legal orientation programs, ensure children have access to lawyers, and increase court appearance rates.”
