"Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride" Kick-off event--Fri Aug 8, 6pm

When: Friday August 8th, 2003
Where: at the Northwest Labor Council Union Hall
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 rights denied by their undocumented status and outdated laws.
