Let’s Travel the Road to Citizenship Together

There's no doubt that the time is now for comprehensive immigration reform and a roadmap to citizenship for 11 million aspiring Americans. But, not surprisingly, many Republicans in the House of Representatives seem content with obstructing this vital reform and letting our broken immigration system drag on indefinitely.

Sounds like business as usual in DC… But here in California, we're not just going to sit around and wait to see what happens in the Capitol; we're hitting the streets to make our voices heard!

Next week, dozens of groups from all over California are joining a caravan to Bakersfield to demand a vote on comprehensive immigration reform. Why Bakersfield? That's the district of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the #3 ranking Republican in the House of Representatives. He has the ability to influence House leadership like few others can. 

On Wednesday, August 14th, join thousands of Californians from all across the state as we caravan through Bakersfield for immigration reform, and conclude with a rally at Rep. McCarthy's Bakersfield office. Caravans will be leaving from Sacramento, Salinas, Modesto, Fresno, LA and Orange County (details below). All working families and immigrant rights activists are welcome to join this historic event!
