Video: Unity Rally at White House for Immigrant Rights


By BillyClub - Posted on 17 August 2013

On Saturday afternoon, August 17, 2013, at noon, a rally was held in front of the White House calling for “immigrant rights.” The demonstration was initiated by a coalition of women’s social justice organizations in a united front. In their press release, they declared: “We deserve the right to live in dignity and free from the fear of being separated from our families.” I talked with Ms. Heather Benno, a social justice activist from “Women Organized to Resist and Defend,” WORD, about the reasons for this spirited rally.
