People Unite! March against H.R. 4437 - Friday, March 10th at noon
Come join immigrants from all over the nation in a historic march this Friday, March 10th at 12 noon! We need to send a message to the nation that:
we need to pass the DREAM Act for undocumented students and lay down a path to citizenship for their parents
we must reunite families that have been separated by our broken immigration laws
we have to unite as a nation and say no to anti-immigrant racism and backwards legislation like H.R. 4437, the Hastert/Sensenbrenner bill
those of us who are eligibile to be citizens will apply for citizenship, those of us who are eligible to vote will vote to be heard
Today we March, Tomorrow we Vote!
Meeting Point and Departure of March:
Where: Union Park, Ashland and Lake, in Chicago
When: 12:00 noon
Where: Federal Plaza (Kluczynski Building), 230 S. Dearborn St.
When: 2 p.m. - 5 p.m.
We salute the Mexican Homeland Federation for their leadership in organizing this march and encourage immigrants of all nationalities to join us with one voice.
P.S. We need volunteers to help distribute flyers about citizenship and voting during the march. If you are interested in helping distribute flyers, please contact Karla Avila at 312-332-7360, ext. 15 or Luvia Quinones, ext. 12.
