Coming Out for Immigration Reform So That No One Has to Hide

On October 5, immigrant rights activists will mobilize like never before to demand Congress pass comprehensive immigration reform this year. LGBT organizations will be marching alongside Latino, Asian, and immigrant communities, joined by faith, labor, and civil rights organizations to make a unified call for immigration reform that ends deportations and wasteful spending on border militarization, and promotes family unity and protects worker rights.

Then, immigration rights groups will continue to escalate its efforts with a rally and free concert on Tuesday, Oct. 8 on the National Mall in Washington, DC, beginning at 12:30pm. Tens of thousands of people are confirmed.
