Oregon May Day 2008 Events

Immigrant Rights and Labor Advocates Join Together For a Day of Solidarity

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. This May Day, 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

  • May Day March For Immigrant Rights

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