Want to help tip the scales in favor of immigration reform? This Saturday, October 5th, communities across the country will unite in support of immigration reform under one slogan – fighting for dignity and
respect for immigrants. Days later, on Tuesday, October 8th, tens of thousands will deliver this message directly to Congress with a rally and concert featuring Los Tigres del Norte on Washington D.C.’s National Mall before marching to Congress to send a message — Get Immigration Reform Done; and Get it Done Now.
On Saturday, October 5th, a broad movement, bringing together immigrant communities with faith, labor, and civil rights groups, will join together in over 40 cities across the United States. This diverse movement will be unified in its calls for Congress to pass immigration reform with a path to citizenship, which promotes family unity, protects worker rights, stops deportations, and halts massive wasteful spending on unneeded border militarization. The more of us who attend these events, the louder our voice will be heard throughout the halls of Congress.
Will you be in DC on Tuesday, October 8th? If so, join tens of thousands of individuals and families of all backgrounds to unite in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month and a vision for one America. We’ll meet at 12:30 p.m. on the National Mall as we tell Congress that the #timeisnow to pass immigration reform. The precise location on the National Mall may change due to the government shutdown. Please check out the website before heading down.
