The National Education Association (NEA) is asking you to join them in the All in for Citizenship March and Rally on April 10 in Washington, DC.
The event will reassert the mandate from the election for Congress to act urgently to fix our nation’s broken immigration system. For too long, our communities have suffered under a defective and outdated immigration system that stifles our economic growth, makes political scapegoats out of immigrants, and tears families apart. As educators, we have witnessed for far too long the impact that the current immigration system has had on our students, their families, and our communities.
NEA is working in conjunction with the Alliance for Citizenship which includes other major unions, most notably SEIU, as well as a variety of other organizations.
NEA has also launched a national contest in conjunction with the march. The contest calls on educators and DREAMers to share their story about why they are inspired to stand up for comprehensive immigration reform. Two individuals – a DREAMer and an educator - with compelling stories will be chosen by the NEA to fly to Washington, D.C. to participate in the march. Read the Contest Rules.
Please encourage anyone who is interested in participating in the April 10 event to go to Education Votes for information on the march and to sign-up.
