Share Your Story

It is central to America’s Voice to tell the stories of the millions of hard-working immigrants trying to make lives for themselves in the United States. We’re eager to hear yours.

Send a Letter to the Editor

Writing a letter to the editor is a great way to make your voice heard. A well developed letter with one unified message is most powerful. Readers really do pay attention to Letters to the Editor, because they get to see their neighbors and friends writing in and are curious about where they stand. Policy makers also read them to gauge the views of their constituents.

Write to Congress

Our federal immigration system is broken, and Congress must step up to address the problem. Write your Representative and Senators and urge them to pursue comprehensive, common sense immigration reform. Tell them you support comprehensive immigration reform today.

Write to Your State Legislators

Your state legislators are in a powerful position to step up where Congress has fallen behind, by enacting common sense measures to integrate our communities and opposing counter-productive, over-aggressive policies. Urge your state legislators to support state and local proposals that help immigrants integrate into our communities, and oppose counter-productive approaches that take us further off track.

Tell Your Friends

Help spread the word about America’s Voice’s pursuit of real, comprehensive immigration reform by sending your friends and family an e-mail introducing them to us. We’ve made it easy to import your address book, and you should feel free to edit the actual message.
