UAFA’s co-sponsor list grows and grows!
By Laura Hoch on 10/03/2012 @ 01:21 PM
We are very excited to announce the three newest co-sponsors of UAFA: Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas (D-TX-30), Congressman Ron Kind (D-WI-3), and Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-MD-4). The decision of these Members of Congress to sign on brings our number of co-sponsors in the House to 143 – a record number for UAFA. We also have a record number of bipartisan cosponsors in the Senate – 29.
In addition, Congresswoman Johnson and Congresswoman Edwards became the 29th and 30th members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to sign on to UAFA; 70% of CBC members have now cosponsored.
Help our co-sponsor list continue to grow! It’s easy to ask your own Members of Congress to become the next to co-sponsor. Use our online tool to write them an email sharing your story (or the story of a relative or friend) and asking them to become a co-sponsor. You can also share your story with the Immigration Equality Action Fund team and let us know you would like to be considered for future Congressional outreach. Your personal story means so much in building support for this legislation.
We would like to thank Congresswoman Johnson, Congressman Kind, and Congresswoman Edwards, as well as their staffs, for supporting UAFA and working to bring us another step closer to equality.
