Support Immigration Reform on National Call-in Day: November 1311 Nov

Cabrini

St. Frances Cabrini, Patroness of Immigrants, Pray For Us

On Wednesday, November 13, the Church celebrates the Feast of St. Frances Cabrini, a patroness of immigrants. On that day Catholics and others who support fair and just comprehensive immigration reform have an opportunity to raise their voices and speak up on behalf of immigrants living amongst us.

Please use this TOLL-FREE phone number on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 to leave a message for your Kentucky member of the House of Representatives in Washington:

1-855-589-5698

On this National Call-In Day to Congress, callers using the TOLL-FREE number will hear a short recording instructing them to give the following message to their Member of Congress:

SUPPORT A PATH TO CITIZENSHIP AND OPPOSE THE SAFE ACT.

After the recording, callers will then be prompted to enter their zip code on their telephone keypad and will be connected directly to their Representative’s DC office.

Before Wednesday, please share this message with your friends and family members and ask them to make the phone call also. If you use Twitter we suggest this for a tweet:

On 11/13 Catholics|friends of immigrants: call U.S. Representatives 1-855-589-5698-“Support a path to citizenship and oppose the SAFE Act.”

Of course there is a great deal of more information about the Church’s teaching regarding immigration and why we ask people to speak up on their behalf at http://www.justiceforimmigrants.org/.

And you can also send this written message to your members of Congress in addition to taking the time to make that phone call on November 13: http://bit.ly/JFIpostcard

Rep. Ed Whitfield – 202.225-3115
