Help us make history again.
Over the past several weeks, we asked you to stand with us and call on your lawmakers to co-sponsor the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA). Thanks to your incredible response, we reintroduced UAFA with a record number of original co-sponsors.
Your calls make a real difference, and we have another opportunity to build on the amazing momentum our families now have on Capitol Hill.
Please take a moment and ask your Representative to sign on as a co-sponsor of the Reuniting Families Act.
In just a few weeks, Congressman Mike Honda — one of the most outspoken champions of our families — will reintroduce the Reuniting Families Act (RFA), too. The RFA, which includes UAFA, is a comprehensive family immigration bill that will help keep all families, gay and straight, together. It will end the backlog that keeps so many families apart, and provide an opportunity for LGBT Americans to sponsor their spouses and partners for residency in the United States.
Call your Representative now at (202) 224-3121. Ask the operator to connect you with your Representative; if you don't know who your Representative is, the operator can tell you.
Once you reach the office, all you have to say is:
"Hi, my name is _________, I live at (your street address and city) and I am your constituent. I am calling to ask Representative ____________ to co-sponsor the Reuniting Families Act, a bill that would allow all families, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender families, to stay together."
Please take a moment and call today ... and ask your family and friends to call as well.
Let's make history ... again.
