The Toolkit is a collection of documents and resources that we hope will help you speak up in support of comprehensive humane immigration reform.   It is crucial that your Congressional Representative and Senators hear from many people who support fair, just, humane reform.  These resources will help you craft your own message.  You might also simply want to send the New Path document and testimony AFSC has given with a note saying that you like what is said in those documents and hope that they will read them.  What is important is that you speak up!
