This important update is from our friends at Filipino Advocate for Justice:
Senator Reid has scheduled for The DREAM Act to come to the floor tomorrow, Saturday, December 18th, and we need your help today to pass this historic bill that would provide the opportunity for more than 65,000 undocumented high school grads a pathway to legalization and a chance to further contribute to our county and economy. The vote may come as early as 10 a.m. EST. This means we only have a few hours to make as many calls to Senate as we can.
How YOU can help make history TODAY:
1) Tell the targeted members of Senate to PASS the DREAM Act today!
2) Contact these targeted Senators by calling toll-free at: 1-866-996-5161 or call their DC offices directly.

“When the DREAM act comes to the floor for a vote tomorrow, I urge you to please VOTE YES and support immigrant students.”
4) Encourage your friends, families and communities to do the same!
