WHY: Leaders playing a central role in promoting immigration reform, including NCLR (National Council of La Raza), will officially launch the Reform Immigration FOR America Campaign. This groundbreaking, momentum-building effort organizes supporters of immigration reform into a stronger, more effective, and politically savvy national campaign which will help support President Obama and ensure that his promises of addressing comprehensive immigration reform become legislative reality.

 

The press conference announcing the Reform Immigration FOR America Campaign is part of a weeklong series of events, including more than 30 local campaign launch press events in 20 states (June 1), a national summit in Washington, DC bringing together 700 grassroots advocates representing more than 35 states (June 3-5), and a National Town Hall Meeting on Capitol Hill (June 4) on immigration reform.
