WHY:  In only two days, tens of thousands of people from all over the country will gather 
at the National Mall for the largest march of the Obama era to celebrate democracy and demand Congress and President Obama deliver on their promises of economic recovery and comprehensive immigration reform. 

On March 21, we will celebrate America's values and history as a nation of immigrants. We will celebrate America's values of inclusiveness, justice and equality. We will exercise our Constitutional rights and demand economic fairness for everyone and recognition of our civil rights for all who work hard to sustain our country. Our laws and policies must honor our families, protect American workers and move this country forward.  

It's time the President and Congress lead and live up to their responsibility to steer this nation to a better, brighter tomorrow with opportunity for all.
