you might need to scroll the embedded window up or down– sometimes info/questions are hidden unless you scroll

You can also send the letter, on your own!:

Download the sign-on letter and email it to DeLeo, Sanchez, Baker and YOUR rep, –or just reference the “Safe Communities Coalition Letter from June 13”– and say You support the letter, you support keeping families together, community safety, and it’s time to pass the Safe Communities Act.

Need a Short Recap? Though the SCA bill has been stalled in “study”, advocates with your support have pushed central key provisions to passage via the budget. The fate of these SCA provisions lies in the hands of the Budget Conference Committee–and, really, in the hands of the House Chair, Jeffrey Sanchez, and really, Speaker DeLeo.

Here’s a secret: Though you will routinely hear from legislators and hard-boiled advocates that it’s up to the Speaker, with the defeated conclusion that ‘it’s no use talking to your own rep, because it’s really up to the Speaker/leadership’….

…. Leadership actually does care if all of a sudden the rank and file members start feeling more scared of NOT doing the right thing, than they are of the blowback from Trumpians for doing the right thing.

The key? Persistent, uncompromising outreach. Called? Call again. Say your’e wondering what they’ve done lately to push Leadership. Ask for receipts!

    Forcibly separating children is a crime against humanity. Not only does it permanently traumatize children and their parents, it can lead to chronic mental illness, including permanent distrust, anger, and even violence towards government institutions and people in general.

  2. David Greenberg says:

    Joe is absolutely right! It is a despicable action that one would expect to find in a fascist state, We must stop this crime being committed in our name.

  3. BOB BURKE says:

    I’m a veteran, a former naval intelligence officer. This is such an anathema to the values I thought we were trying to protect.

  4. Henryka Lampert Boden says:

    My father was a refugee in WWII who came to America after the war. He suffered the consequences of that trauma his whole life. We do not need to become the very evil we fought against and say we abhor. We need to act with compassion and humanity. Not fear and hatred

  5. Kaspar Kasparian says:

    Hopefully this will be the last moral outrage that will wake up legislators and move them to pass a humane-law that protects vulnerable refugees who are fleeing to the US from countries where their lives and the lives of their families are threatened.
