Alexandria, VA –  After risking arrest and deportation in pursuit of the American Dream, four immigrant students (Gaby, Luis, Felipe, and Carlos) walking the Trail of Dreams from Florida to DC will arrive in the heart of the Latino immigrant community in Northern Virginia. The neighborhood, also known as Chirilagua, is hosting a welcome celebration for the Trail of Dreamers.

 “These young people embody the immigrant dream and on this journey, they carry with them our greatest hopes for the future of our communities and our nation,” says Lucero Beebe-Giudice spokesperson for Tenants and Workers United, “Their arrival has reignited the fire in our hearts. We welcome the Trail of Dreamers with open hearts and commit ourselves to the struggle for the justice that can only come with comprehensive immigration reform.”

At approximately 4:00 pm on Monday April 26, the Trail of Dreams will reach the outer limits of the City of Alexandria.

They will join the procession as it passes until they reach 3801 Mount Vernon Avenue where festivities are scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm.

The event is being organized by Tenants and Workers United, a grassroots organization dedicated to building the power of communities of color and low income people.
