On Saturday May 1st, join CAUSA and our allies in Salem for a Student May Day March  in support of the DREAM Act, Comprehensive Immigration Reform and to Pay Tribute to Latin American Workers.

The March will start at 11am at the corner of Winter and State Street behind the Capitol Building and end at the Oregon State Fairgrounds (2330 17th St. NE, Salem, OR).
