Join Pennsylvania United for Immigration Reform (PUIR) and the Penn Law Immigrant Rights Project (PLIRP) for a comprehensive immigration reform rally! 


Saturday Oct. 5th, 12:00 pm. 

LOVE Park, 16th & JFK Blvd, Philadelphia PA 

On October 5, immigrant communities and their allies will be holding marches and rallies in over 60 cities across the country calling for just and humane immigration reform with a pathway citizenship, legal immigration rules that promote family unity and protect worker rights, an end to the destruction of our families through deportations, and a halt to the rush towards massive wasteful spending on unneeded border militarization and for profit immigrant detention prisons. 

Here in Pennsylvania, attend our rally at LOVE Park calling for immigration reform that promotes family unification, followed by a march to the ICE offices to demand an end to deportations.

For those who will be out of town, find a rally near you at http://octoberimmigration.org/october-5-events.
