April 10th National Day of Action for Immigrant Justice
by April10.org
Wednesday Apr 5th, 2006 12:06 PM
The National Capital Immigrant Coalition – a coalition of immigrant, labor, faith, civil rights and business community groups in the metro, Washington, DC area – and allies around the nation, developed the concept of a National Day of Action.
About the April 10 Day of Action

The plan for the April 10 Day of Action came from the grassroots. The National Capital Immigrant Coalition – a coalition of immigrant, labor, faith, civil rights and business community groups in the metro, Washington, DC area – and allies around the nation, developed the concept of a National Day of Action. Their good idea caught on like wildfire and today hundreds of local grassroots organizations and coalitions are working together in cities all over America to make our voices heard.

For months, the incredible energy and organizing talent within immigrant communities has been leading the national news. Communities that have lived in the shadows and in fear are now speaking out about how America's broken immigration system regularly rips families apart, creates the conditions for gross workplace and civil rights violations, and fuels a political climate where being “anti-immigrant” is considered by some politicians to be a winning strategy.

Immigrant communities are coming together on April 10 to proudly declare that “We Are America” and that immigration reform must not violate the American values that we cherish. In cities from coast-to-coast, immigrants, families and friends will gather, tell our own personal stories, demand political action and contribute our energy and talents to the growing movement for immigrant justice.

Our goal is to stop anti-immigrant legislation from becoming law and to pass real, comprehensive immigration reform that provides a clear path to citizenship, unites families, and ensures workplace and civil rights protections for all.

You can help support immigrant families on April 10.
