A big Thank You to this week’s Champions of the TRUST Act!

ICIRR members and partner organizations have shown incredible dedication this week, spreading the word about the importance of the TRUST Act in Illinois, and urging Governor Rauner to make it law.  By reaching out to members via e-blast, writing op-eds, organizing phone-banks, creating videos to drive calls, tweeting and tagging reps in posts, and recognizing those representatives who voted in the interest of immigrants, these TRUST Act Champions showed exceptional dedication!

We want to thank the following organizations for their exceptional work this week defending our "Communities on the line!":  Access Living, Asian Americans Advancing Justice I Chicago, Arab American Family Services,  ACLU Illinois, Casa Michoacan, Hana Center, Centro de Trabajadores Unidos,  Indo-American Center,  Jewish Council on Urban Affairs,  League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford, National Immigrant Justice Center, PASO-West Suburban Action Project, Spanish Community Center (Joliet), Syrian Community Network and others!
