Pictures from the march in New York are still rolling in! Its looking like folks are having a great time, despite the rainy conditions.
This group is great - Cabrini Immigrant Services. We've got pro-migrant folks, we've got human rights folks and here come the faith community peeps! I know I've already said it, but its great to see such a diverse crowd.
I love this banner. We are America!
United for Peace and Justice is representing at the New York rally. Such a diverse crowd is gathering - you can feel the support for reform growing by the minute.
1:45 The Make the Road New York people are already getting rowdy! A friend just called from this rally and I could literally feel the electricity through the phone. Beautiful.
Binari-ykasec drummers at the NYC may day rally- performing at 2:00! They also texted in and said: We, BINARI-YKASEC, drum for justice and to push for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, NOW!!!
We love immigrant New York!
Here are two advocates from Make the Road New York, holding their homemade sign that calls for Justice for Immigrants, because NOW is the time!
Man, I am getting excited! It's amazing to watch these pictures, stories and text messages roll in across the country. Does anybody else feel the movement building?
My colleague Sean is gearing up for the marches in NYC today. He will be joining thousands of other folks on the Southeast side of Madison Square Park (23rd and Broadway, Manhattan) at 1:30 pm. Today, Sean is marching for Just and Humane Immigration Reform, not Raids that tear apart families and communities.
What are you marching for?
