National Day of Action 2013

Stand with AILA as we fight for immigration solutions! On Thursday, April 11th, hundreds of AILA members from around the country will descend on Washington D.C. for our 2013 National Day of Action. Join us as we call on Congress to create a common sense immigration policy that recognizes the hardships and contributions of new Americans and aspiring citizens. Right now Republican and Democratic elected leaders are stepping forward to discuss real world solutions that move the country forward together, but we need to make sure they do the hard work of getting a good bill passed.

Armed with lobbying training from AILA National staff and your clients' stories and experiences you have the opportunity to educate Members of Congress and their staff about the problems plaguing our immigration system.
