IMPORTANT MEMO FROM NEA
FROM: Dennis Van Roekel, President; John Stocks, Executive Director
DATE: March 18, 2013
RE: All in for Citizenship March and Rally
The National Education Association has agreed to play a major sponsorship role in the All in for Citizenship March and Rally on April 10th in Washington, DC.
The April 10th event will reassert the mandate from the election for Congress to act urgently to fix our nation’s broken immigration system.
March organizers expect that by bringing tens of thousands of people to the West Lawn of the Capitol and ensuring national visibility through coverage in local and national news outlets will impact the debate about how to move forward on this issue. NEA is working in conjunction with the Alliance for Citizenship which includes other major unions, most notably SEIU, as well as a variety of other organizations to maximize the impact of the event. Note that April 10th is the anniversary of the largest mobilization for immigrant rights in recent history (April 10, 2006).
As educators, we have witnessed for far too long the impact that the current immigration system has had on our students, their families, and our communities.
To have a visible presence, we will actively seek educator participation from neighboring states.
Additionally, NEA has also launched a national contest in conjunction with the march. The contest calls on educators and DREAMers to share their story about why they are inspired to stand up for comprehensive immigration reform. Two individuals – a DREAMer and an educator – with compelling stories will be chosen by the NEA to fly to Washington, DC to participate in the march. Contest Rules can be found athttp://educationvotes.nea.org/2013/03/14/sign-up-here-for-the-national-immigration-reform-rally-on-april-10/.
Please encourage members who are interested in participating in the April 10th event to go to Education Votes for information on the march. They can also RSVP on Education Votes.
If you have questions about NEA’s role or ideas about how to maximize our members’ participation, please contact the lead for our immigration work, Rocio Inclan (RInclan@nea.org).
