California's working families, along with immigrant rights leaders, labor unions, faith organizations, student groups, elected officials and other allies, are announcing a series of major mobilizations throughout the state to rally support for a comprehensive immigration policy with a road map to citizenship. Upset at congressional Republicans' refusal to move forward on immigration policy, Californians have decided to take action instead of sitting idly by while legislation stalls in Washington, D.C.
More than 150 actions already are planned across the state, with more details about the events and the overall "Countdown to Citizenship" campaign to be announced Tuesday, Aug. 6, at 9:30 a.m. PDT at an event at Los Angeles City Hall. The targets of the actions will be the Republican leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives and Republican House members who represent California.
