1000 Days in Sanctuary Campaign

ROSA BELONGS HERE 1000 DAYS IN SANCTUARY

Dear Sanctuary Supporters,

We’ve all been wondering how and when Rosa will get to leave Sanctuary.

The only way for Rosa to get out of Sanctuary is for a Private Bill for Lawful Permanent Residency to be passed by the two houses of Congress and signed by the President.

We have been advised that now is the time to attempt to introduce a private bill in order to move the process along the timeline that we need. In order to do this, we need to find sponsors for this bipartisan Private Bill.

The 1000 Days in Sanctuary Campaign will target Colorado’s District 3 representative, Scott Tipton for the second time. We are engaging with Rep. Tipton again because his House seat is contested in the upcoming 2020 election and we hope to bring Rosa’s case and immigration reform into the state and national conversation as we approach November. We are grateful to be receiving immense strategic support from Michelle Ferrigno Warren, who is a longtime support of immigrant rights and is running to represent Colorado in the U.S. Senate.

Our goal is to gather 1,500+ District 3 constituent signatures to publicly present to Rep. Tipton in early 2020. This means that we need your signatures and support as far north as Craig and as far east as Pueblo!
