March for Immigration Reform with AAANY!



March for Immigration Reform with AAANY

In more than 90 cities around the country on Saturday, October 5, 2013, immigration reform advocates will be mobilizing communities to demand that Congress take action on immigration reform. In New York City, immigrant rights groups (including the Arab American Association of NY) will gather at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn at 12pm and march across the Brooklyn Bridge to let Congress know that we will stand for nothing less than a pathway to citizenship!

Help us send a message to Congress that NOW is the time to act!

Meet us at AAANY (7111 5th Ave) at 10:30am and we will head to the march together. Please RSVP to Faiza@ArabAmericanNY.org with your name and phone number.
