April 10th Mobilization for Comprehensive Immigration Reform!

For the first time in a long time, there is momentum for moving immigration reform legislation forward! At this pivotal moment, we are headed to Washington D.C to join tens of thousands of participants in a rally to tell Congress that the TIME IS NOW for fair and just comprehensive immigration reform! For more information about the rally, click HERE.

The A10 Rally will be April 10, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. Rally attendees are raising their voices to push for a solution that prioritizes family unity, protects workers, restores due process, meets our nation’s economic and labor needs, and—importantly--provides a path to citizenship for the 11 million people living in the U.S. without status. Advocates and affected people will be meeting with members of Congress from across the state before the rally to tell their stories and push for reform. 

Mobilized by the New Yorkers for Real Immigration Reform campaign, 2,000 New Yorkers will be heading to the Capitol to rally for the immediate introduction of a strong immigration reform bill. The statewide campaign, coordinated by the New York Immigration Coalition, is sending 42 buses to DC, filled with the state’s diverse immigrant, faith, and labor community members and leaders, including affected families. Buses will depart from various locations in New York City, upstate New York and Long Island.
