Immigrants make vital contributions to the fabric of America – economy, culture, talent, and dreams – and on August 20, 2009, immigrant communities throughout California will unite in their commitment to strengthen America. “Immigrant Day of Service” is based on the belief that service is rooted in the social responsibility of all Americans and this is shared by immigrants who work hard to becoming full participants of society.
Below is a list of service events coordinated by the California Reform Immigration for America campaign which works nationally to achieve comprehensive immigration reform that benefits all of us. To learn more about this campaign please visit: http://www.reformimmigrationforamerica.org.
“Immigrants Day of Service” is part of United We Serve, a nationwide service initiative that President Obama launched on June 22, 2009. With the knowledge that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things when given the proper tools, President Obama is asking us to come together to help lay a new foundation for growth.
