Organizer/AuthorTomas Alejo
Communities and unions across the nation are organizing to help push comprehensive immigration reform policies.

Already meetings are being held in Monterrey and San Benito Counties, it’s time for Santa Cruz to mobilize!

As we work to rebuild the economy, our ability to thrive depends on restoring responsibility
and accountability to our immigration system

President Barack Obama spelled it out clearly:
- Prosperity for all Americans - Out-innovate -Out-educate -Out-build the rest of the world
-Fix our broken immigration system!

We can’t stand around and wait!
Our community needs to unite to push Washington to enact reforms.

Friday, February 22, at 6pm at the SEIU Building 517 B Mission St in Santa Cruz

I'm an Indigenous (Blackfeet, Pikuni) elder and we are encouraging people to use Migrant rather than immigrant as "We did not cross the borders, the borders crossed us". Indian country stretches from the Arctic Circle to the tip of Chile and the use of the word Immigrant reinforces the borders forced on us. Vocabulary is powerful so "Who are you calling Immigrant, Pilgrim"
