Wednesday March 14 PhonePetition Day - CALL and COLLECT petitions for the New York Dream Act. Make sure to call your representatives in Albany, express your support for the New York Dream Act and get your friends to do the same. Find your representative in the New York Dream Act website. Use this printable paper version of the petition for outdoor use and/or collect them online. However, the trick is to get someone to sign the petition that has no idea you are undocumented. By sharing your story you’ll see there’s a lot of support out there.
