The IIIC urges you to rally on April 6th at Faneuil Hall at 11:00am with New England labor, community and faith groups Saturday. The time is now for our voices to be heard. It very important that Irish immigrants in the Greater Boston area show up at this rally and that our voices are heard. We will stand together at Faneuil Hall for 30 minutes, and then march to the Federal Building. There will be a very brief speaking program at Faneuil Hall.
We need to remind lawmakers what’s at stake for the 11 million undocumented immigrants. The rally is being coordinated by the Alliance for Citizenship, the events are part of a national week of action during Congress’ Easter recess, and are focused on urging Congress to include a clear and direct path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. The Alliance for Citizenship is a progressive campaign designed to seize this moment, working with labor, immigrant, community and faith-based organizations to pass major immigration legislation in Congress in 2013.
