Chicago Campus Community Rallies Support
for DACA on National Call-In Day
02.28.18

Adler University’s Chicago campus community was among those from more than 60 higher education institutions Wednesday taking part in a targeted initiative urging U.S. lawmakers to pass a permanent, bipartisan solution for Dreamers.

The Feb. 28 collaborative effort – known as the “Friends of Dreamers National Higher Education Call-In Day” – included a day-long stream of student, faculty and staff volunteers stopping into a designated campus call center to phone Congress. Participants were invited to visit any time between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. Each was armed with background materials; scripts, for those seeking direction; and Congressional contact information.

The national rally cry was led by the Presidents' Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration, of which Adler University President Raymond Crossman, Ph.D., is a part. It followed the U.S. Senate’s failure to pass legislation last week that could protect Dreamers.
