VICTORY: SB 3488 Passes Senate Executive Committee – plus next steps!

Dear AAFS Community,

We are pleased to announce that SB 3488, the Anti-Registration Program Act, passed in the Illinois Senate Executive Committee yesterday in Springfield, Illinois!

As part of Illinois Muslim Action Day, organized by the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago (CIOGC), Arab American Family Services (AAFS) joined partner organizations in Springfield to encourage support for the bill from state lawmakers.

The Anti-Registration Program Act will continue to ensure that Illinois does not cooperate with against any federal registry program that would single out any group of Americans based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious belief, or other characteristics.

With this victory, the bill goes to the Senate floor for a vote. In the meantime, AAFS plans to continue garnering community support for the bill as well as outreach to our legislatures for their commitment to vote in favor of the bill.

Help us ensure that Illinois remains a welcoming state – take a moment out of your day to let your Senator know why it’s important to pass this bill.

AAFS encourages you to contact your Senator and urge them to support Senate Bill 3488, the Anti-Registration Program Act:

>> Contact your Senator and ask them to vote YES on Senate Bill 3488

Thank you for your continued support!

The AAFS Team
