PHOTOS: Walk for Citizenship from Madras to Bend

Did you miss the Walk for Citizenship that happened earlier this week?

Here is a photo slideshow of the three days that participants walked from Madras to Bend :

And a short video from Oregon AFL-CIO:

Over three days from September 15th to the 17th, immigration reform supporters walked over 42 miles from Madras to Bend, from the heart of Central Oregon’s agricultural community to the Central Oregon office of our Congressman Greg Walden. They will walk from town to town, holding vigils, mass, community conversations and rallies. Join us to rally for and celebrate communities that welcome all people and promote the dignity of all.

A BIG THANK YOU to the participants and supporters and to Greg Delgado and Reyna Lopez--organizers of the Walk -- and Gerardo Zúñiga and Jess Flores Guzmán for gathering photos over the 3 days!
