A Dream for the Holidays is a chance for kids to make their voices heard in Congress!
Letters can come from anywhere in the country, and from children of all ages. They can be writing, drawings, or both. Letters can come from children who have experienced or fear family separation, or they can come from children who are just learning about these issues, but know that all families should be together!
Tools to help you get started:
Our Letter-writing Toolkit in English or Spanish contains resources to help you write your letters and ideas for facilitating letter-writing events. Download PDFs of the toolkit in English and Spanish.
Teachers looking for ways to talk with parents about DREAM for the Holidays can share sample letters in English and Spanish. Download PDFs of the letters in English here and Spanish here.
We’ll deliver your letters to members of Congress in early December (right at a time when they are looking forward to spending time with their own families.) We need Congress to stand up to the White House's attacks on immigrants.The voices of children and youth are powerful and can sway Congress to do the right thing and pass a clean DREAM Act and protections for families with TPS. We’re so glad you're joining us!
