On Tuesday, September 24, Congress will review H.R. 2214, the NO BAN Act. The NO BAN Act will repeal all versions of the Muslim Ban authorized through executive order over the past two years, and will amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to prohibit discrimination based on religion. Additionally, it will limit the broad executive authority that allowed the refugee and asylum bans by implementing stricter implementation requirements and greater congressional oversight.
Now, more than ever, it is critical that Members of Congress show their support against discrimination, and support this legislation. Join us in telling Members of Congress to support the NO BAN Act.
STEP ONE: Find out who your representative is here.
STEP TWO: Use this sample script to call your Member of Congress:
Hi, my name is [First, Last] and I am calling to urge you to sign-on in support of H.R. 2214, the NO BAN Act, which will be reviewed by the House Foreign Affairs and Judiciary committees in a hearing on September 24.
The NO BAN Act will immediately end the Muslim bans, and will limit the broad executive authority that allowed for the refugee and asylum bans through stricter implementation requirements and greater Congressional oversight.
These bans have caused needless harm to thousands of Muslims, refugees, and asylum seekers who have been blocked from finding safety in the U.S. and remain separated from their families. It is time for Congress to put an end to these bans.
America must remain a beacon of religious freedom and safety. I urge you to support this critical legislation.
STEP 3: Help us to generate as many phone calls as possible. Ask your family and friends to join in calling their elected officials.
