May Day March and Rally Next Wednesday
Join Coleman and our allies in the Progressive Workers Alliance at a May Day March and Rally! In 2006, 20,000 people in the Bay Area joined millions of immigrants and allies all over the United States to stand against the anti-immigrant laws and policies which were being proposed- and we witnessed the some of the largest demonstrations in the history of United States!
Now we have comprehensive immigration reform back on the table and the stakes are just as high...
Join us as the San Francisco Bay Area comes together to push for humane, equitable and inclusive immigration reform! We will begin the march at 24th Street & Mission at 3pm. We will march together to Civic Center Plaza where we will have closing speakers and performances.
