Today, thousands of people marched in a continued effort to urge legislators to pass commonsense immigration reform, with a roadmap to citizenship.
SEIU President, Mary Kay Henry, joined hundreds of farmworkers, religious and community leaders, local officials, and students in Bakersfield, California for the event, joined with Diana Tellefson Torres, Executive Director of the United Farm Workers Foundation.
The march also honors the legacy of farmworker activist Cesar Chavez, founder of the United Farm Workers of America. Marches took place in many cities throughout California over the weekend.
For SEIU, this is just one event among many calling on Congress to create an immigration system that works for our country.
