Action and livestream of labor rally in D.C.
We must guarantee an economy that works for all of us, and not just a privileged few. This is a critical moment in our fight and we can’t let up now.

Congress must ensure that the immigration provisions stay in the budget. Congress must deliver a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants who call this country home. Congress must deliver on justice for the care economy. Congress must deliver on green infrastructure and invest in measures that will fight climate change.

As both the House of Representatives and Senate return to Congress this week, it is necessary that lawmakers hear from us that investing in care and citizenship is the only way for our country to truly build back better.

Here are TWO WAYS you can take action this week to welcome back Congress and help build the care economy we all need and deserve:


SEPTEMBER 21

WHAT: #WelcomeBackCongress March for Care, Citizenship and Climate.

Immigrants, allies, and community members from 31 states and the District of Columbia will march to the U.S Capitol to welcome Congress back to their legislative session and educate them on issues of care infrastructure, citizenship and climate.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 12pm ET

WHERE: Washington, DC
