May First March for Immigrant Workers
Arlington Courthouse Plaza, Arlington VA

The May First Coalition invites you to March from Virginia to the White House to celebrate the contributions of immigrant workers and protest the harsh anti-immigrant rhetoric and cruel immigration policies of the Trump administration. Millions of immigrants have come to the United States in search of the American dream. They have worked hard to build lives, raise families, and contribute to the social and economic development of their communities, states and adopted country. The harsh anti-immigrant crackdown of the Trump administration seeks to destroy families and harm our economy. We will March on May first to let the them know that Virginians cherish our rich immigrant history and insist that our country and communities remain welcoming and respectful of all who make our great country their home.

WHEN & WHERE: May 1st, 2017. We will begin marching at 01:30 pm at Courthouse Plaza (2100 Clarendon Blvd Arlington, VA 22201) to the White House. You can see the route here: https://goo.gl/maps/3kP4dERMa4v
