Immigrants Coming Out of the Shadows
The struggle for immigrant rights has seen some victories in the course of the past years through the State of Illinois issuance of Temporary Driver’s Licenses in 2014; Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2012 of the Obama Administration; and, the recent Executive Order that will alleviate the day to day struggle for some undocumented immigrants. However, the number of deportations and families separated by deportations have been and still remain at record levels. Meanwhile the grassroots Immigrant Rights Movement in Chicagoland and across the nation is recharging for a massive push in the coming year for immigrant justice by means of a just and comprehensive immigration reform.
Cristobal Cavazos, Founder and Coordinator of Immigrant Solidarity DuPage, will be our main presenter along with ISD Secretary Rafael Vieyra. Immigrant Solidarity DuPage is a community-funded, activist group whose goal is to build solidarity locally with the immigrant community. They educate, organize, and unify the community in support of the rights of both the immigrant and Latino community in DuPage County.
