March and rally in Omaha Saturday for updated immigration laws

Oct 12 NE Immigration Rally -jpgSaturday is a huge day for Nebraskans who think NOW is the time to fix our outdated immigration system!

We want you to join hundreds of Nebraskans from across the state in Omaha Saturday afternoon as we march and gather to tell Congress now is the time to pass updated immigration laws that strengthen families, businesses, communities, and the future of our state.

The “Families’ March and Rally for Dignity and Respect” will bring together Nebraska families, faith, community, youth, labor, and immigrant leaders for a peaceful and passionate march in downtown Omaha, which will culminate in a rally at Heartland of America Park.

Where: March will begin at 10th and Pacific Streets, proceeding north on 10th, to 8th and Farnam (Heartland of America Park) for rally.

When: Saturday, October 12, March begins at 3:00 p.m.  ARRIVE EARLY to find parking. Rally immediately to follow (beginning at approximately 4pm).

Participants are invited to wear their favorite red Husker gear as we show that Nebraskans from across the state believe NOW is the time to fix our outdated immigration laws and stand together for a better Nebraska future.

Come enjoy the music, march, and families! Please remember, if there are counter-protesters who do not support common-sense immigration laws: do not react or engage with them in any way. Simply staying calm and focused on our positive message is the best way to help our cause.

We hope to see you Saturday!
