"Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride" Kick-off!
When: Friday August 8th, 2003
Where: at the Northwest Labor Council Union Hall
(1125 SE Madison St. Portland, OR.: on the corner of 12th and Madison)
6:00 to 8:00pm
***Special musical presentation by Irene Farrera***
What: Come join us in an evening of solidarity, music,poetry, and testimonies designed to kick-off a state-wide organizing campaign that will send a Freedom Bus filled with Freedom Riders to Washington DC.
Immigrant workers, living and paying taxes in the United States, deserve the rights to legalize their status, to have a clear road to citizenship, to reunify their families, to have a voice on the job without regard to legal status, and to enjoy full protection of their civil rights and civil liberties... rights denied by their undocumented status and outdated laws.
Join us in drawing a new map for the road to Citizenship!
