15th Annual Immigrant Action Day to include Same-sex, Mixed-immigration Status Wedding Ceremony

15th Annual Immigrant Action Day to include Same-sex, Mixed-immigration Status Wedding Ceremony

Salem, Ore. -- On Saturday, February 9th, Causa Oregon will host it’s 15th Annual Immigrant Action Day bringing over 400 of our affiliates and allies from around the state to Salem, Oregon to see, to think, to act, to evaluate and reflect, and to celebrate. At this year’s assembly, we will prepare our 2013 Action Plans to advocate for a Legalization Program, Driver’s License Restoration and Tuition Equity.

This year's Immigrant Action Day will be special as participants will join in the first-ever celebration and wedding ceremony of a same-sex couple with mixed immigration status at a Causa event. This special occasion is part of Causa’s commitment to our gay and lesbian immigrant community. During President Obama’s January 29th speech on his legalization principles, the President included same-sex families in his priorities which will allow U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents the ability to seek visas on the basis of a permanent relationship with a same-sex partner.
