Thanks to all who joined the 3rd Civil Disobedience Action in front of 26 Federal Plaza in Manhattan. Yesterday, 56 labor, community, faith and elected leaders were arrested in an act of civil disobedience to call on President Obama and Congress to enact just, humane and comprehensive immigration reform, stop the deportations, and stop SB1070. We thank the courageous participants and supporters who came out yesterday!
Below is yesterday’s press release, press coverage highlights, and the list of 56 CD participants. More details coming very soon re: next steps.
