Immigrants and Allies to Rally for Driving Privilege Restoration and Just and Humane Immigration Reform

Salem, Ore-This Thursday, immigrants, social justice advocates, people of faith, and organized labor will gather in Salem for a day of action and call on elected leaders to reject anti-immigrant proposals at the national, state and local level.


Who: Immigrants, social justice advocates, people of faith and labor unions

When: Thursday, May 1st, 2007, 11:00AM-3:00PM

Where: Oregon State Capitol 900 Court St. NE, Salem, OR

As national and local candidates jockey to prove who is most anti-immigrant, the immigrant community demands a solution for the 12 million undocumented immigrant workers and families who are living in the shadows. We renew our call for just reform, a stop to the criminalization of immigrants and a rejection of all anti-immigrant proposals. We issue calls to the following elected leaders:

  • Oregon Legislature: Restore Oregon Driving Privileges to ALL Oregon residents

  • Bush Administration: Stop Workplace Raids and Deportations

  • New Administration: Provide leadership for just and humane immigration reform in the first 100 days of the new Presidency

  • Congress: Oppose Anti-immigrant Legislation like the SAVE Act and stop the militarization of U.S. borders

  • We call on ALL immigrant rights, social justice and labor rights advocates to join us in Salem this May Day (Thursday, May 1st, 2008) to continue building the alliance between the immigrants' rights movement, social justice movement, and the workers' rights movement.

    The Rally will begin at 12 noon at the State Capitol (900 Court St. NE, Salem) with a March to follow around 1 pm. Contact: Aeryca Steinbauer at (503) 984-6816 for more information.
