A Call to Action: Support The Affordable Connectivity Program Extension Act of 2024

We’re calling on you to support Legislative Bill S. 3565.

We ask you to urgently call upon Washington’s Congressional Delegation to act swiftly in renewing ongoing Federal funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). This vital program is a lifeline for our most vulnerable families across rural, Tribal, suburban, and urban communities in Washington, enabling them to access affordable internet services and acquire essential devices. The ACP goes beyond mere connectivity; it’s about facilitating access to education, employment opportunities, job training, elder care, family connections, faith programs, healthcare, farming resources, and civic participation. Its impact on our communities cannot be overstated.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a benefit program that helps ensure households can afford reliable broadband services for work, school, healthcare and much more. The ACP was enacted by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in November of 2021 as an extension of the Emergency Broadband Benefit, which provided a monthly benefit to eligible households to receive access to broadband during the first 18 months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more here.

We urge you to join us in spearheading the ongoing funding for the – Affordable Connectivity Program Extension Act of 2024 and ask Washington’s Congressional Delegation to support Legislative Bill S.3565.

Contact Washington’s Congressional Delegation here.

A Call to Action: Defend Our Families – Time Sensitive!

We’re calling on you to defend immigrants and their families!

A Call to Action to Defend Our Families! A bipartisan group of senators is negotiating a deal to pass funding for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan in exchange for extreme, permanent changes to U.S. immigration and asylum law. Now, the White House has signaled support for trading away refugee protections. This tradeoff would destroy lifesaving protections for people seeking safety and increase chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border, as well as expand fast-track deportations of immigrants in the U.S

These are unprecedented threats to refugees and our loved ones and communities.

Time is of the essence: the President hopes Congress will act on a deal before the holidays.

Call Washington State Senators: Patty Murray (202) 224-2621 and Maria Cantwell (202) 224 3441

What to say when you call: I strongly oppose any spending deal that:

  • Trades foreign aid to Ukraine for harmful immigration policies that hurt asylum seekers, children, mixed-status families, and the long-term undocumented.
  • Goes against our values and international obligations by closing our doors to refugees.
  • Results in mandatory detention or sends refugees back to danger and death in their home countries.
  • Creates a nationwide dragnet that deports the undocumented with deep social and economic roots in the U.S. and tears families apart.”

  1. Congressional Republicans are demanding harsh immigration policies.
  2. Recent reports (see here and here) suggest President Biden may agree to a draconian deal with lawmakers.
