Wednesday, March 11: Tell Congress to vote for No Ban Act

The House is scheduled to vote on the No Ban Act tomorrow, March 12. However, there is concern that the leadership of the House will cancel the vote. 

Learn more about it at the website No Muslim Ban Ever

Take action:

Call House leadership to ask them to hold the vote as planned, without any amendments.

The No Ban Act will rescind the new travel ban implemented by the Trump administration on January 20, 2020. It will put new measures in place that will limit the power of the president to put travel bans in place without further consultation with Homeland Security and the Secretaries of State. It will also strengthen nondiscrimination protections in the Immigration and Nationality Act.  

Call House leadership today!

Go to and enter your phone number. You’ll immediately receive a phone call to the number you entered connecting you to the office of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 

You can use this sample script: 

"Hello, my name is _______ and I live in (CITY, STATE). I’m calling to ask the Speaker to stay the course and fully support the NO BAN Act—with no weakening amendments and hold the vote as soon as possible. Thank you."
