All you have to do is send a family photograph to your Members of Congress with a message on the back that says something like, “Immigrants are America’s Families, Workers and Neighbors,” “Just and Humane Immigration Reform Now,” “Keep Families Together, Pathway to Citizenship for All, Basic Rights for All,” or “Keep Families Together, Pathway to Citizenship for All, Deportations Are Not the Answer.”

You can even include this SAMPLE TEXT– “I am deeply concerned that the current immigration debate criminalizes immigrants and divides America. We urge you to unite Americans behind a common vision of America because immigration reform is a key to our nation’s economic prosperity and security. We should welcome immigrants’ hard work, talents, cultural richness and family values.”

You can also add a personal message explaining why you support immigration reform such as “I am a child of immigrants,” “I am an immigrant worker,” or “Immigration makes our culture dynamic.”

This is an easy and creative way to remind Congress that We Are America. Send a Picture Postcard to your US Representative today!
