Despite the snow May 1, Mi Casa joined hundreds of community members marching for national, comprehensive immigration reform in recognition of International Workers Solidarity Day.
International Worker Solidarity Day- often marked by protests for better working conditions and human rights- has united workers around the world for more than 100 years.
Mi Casa joined the crowd rallying for immigration reform Wednesday morning on the west steps of Colorado’s Capital, which served as a backdrop for speeches from state legislators, advocacy leaders, and labor groups.
The speeches kept the crowd’s energy high, recounting the current successes and remaining challenges of the establishment of a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
The crowd then marched along a path to Sunken Garden Park, displaying their support for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., chanting, “El pueblo unido jamás será vencido,” and, “A people united will never be divided.”
Despite the weather, the crowd’s united voice was strong, proving once again that, Sí se puede! Yes, we can!
