National Day of Dignity and Respect – Oct. 5

1TimeIsNow4x6ENGLISHDespite the U.S. Senate passing a historic immigration reform bill this summer, reform has stalled in the U.S. House, with time running out for this important legislation to be implemented this year.

On Saturday, October 5, more than 80 major mobilization efforts, rallies, vigils, pilgrimages, direct action, will take place across the country, marking the National Day for Dignity and Respect–and the beginning of the immigration rights movement’s escalation to bring immigration reform across the finish line this year.

Latino, Asian, and immigrant communities, joined by faith, labor, and civil rights organizations are making a unified call for immigration reform that ends deportations and wasteful spending on border militarization, and promotes family unity and protects worker rights.

In Miami, the event is a March for Dignity and Respect.

Saturday, October 5 at 1 pm beginning in Jose Marti Park in Little Havana – 362 SW 4th Ave, Miami.
