To celebrate May Day (International Workers Day), Minnesotans will be standing together to tell Congress that the TIME IS NOW for immigration reform. We will be starting at a Wells Fargo branch, where community groups will be closing their accounts and telling Wells Fargo that they cannot continue to both market to immigrant communities and at the same time support anti-immigrant politicians with their campaign contributions.
Wednesday, May 1st at 2:00 p.m.
The Time is Now: Together for Immigration Reform rally and march
Meet at the Wells Fargo at 2218 East Lake St in Minneapolis at 2pm to support community members closing their Wells Fargo accounts; Rally at 14th and Lake Street in Minneapolis with Keith Ellison at 3:30 p.m.
From there, we will march to the immigration reform vigil that community group Asamblea de Derechos Civiles is hosting. They have been fasting, praying and making hundreds of phone calls to Congress in support of commonsense immigration reform over the last two weeks. At 3:30 p.m., Representative Keith Ellison will address the vigil as to why this issue is so important to all of our communities and why the TIME IS NOW.
Please RSVP — We need to show corporations they can’t be on both sides of this issue and Congress that we are serious about getting immigration reform!
