March for Human Rights—January 16, Philadelphia

From DreamActivist Pennsylvania (http://dreamactivistpa.org):

Millions of immigrant families are stripped of their civil and human rights in this country everyday. Millions of us live in poverty – struggling to live without access to quality education, healthcare, housing and jobs. We are made to feel like we are isolated in this experience, but we know that is not true. Millions of American families live in these same conditions everyday. The great Martin Luther King Jr. said “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

We must stand against the injustice that keeps us from living our lives with dignity, and the injustice that is breaking apart our families and our communities. Laws are introduced every day to divide us and make us feel as though our struggles are not connected. We are coming together today to declare that this is not true and that we will not be divided. We see that only when we unite together can we fight back for our rights, not just for immigrants, but for all of humanity. Immigrant families and communities in Philly commit to continuing the struggle of Martin Luther King Jr.’s fight for Civil and Human Rights.
