WHO: LA Millions of Voices Coalition

Yesterday Aug. 27, Cong. Luis Gutierrez stated in a telephone Conference with thousands of activists that “the number of Republican Congresspersons that have crossed over to support Immigration Reform with a Path to Citizenship has grown to 40 and more are expected.” And added, “We need the movement to continue carrying out actions.” For all of us in the Coalition and for the media and DJ/Locutores on board, it is imperative the upcoming Millions of People March set for Sept 22 in several cities in the Soutwest has to be a success because hundreds of thousands of people on the streets on that day, will increase the pressure on the Republican leadership by ten fold.

Borrowing a page from the highly successful MEDIA STRATEGY of the Mega Marches and Boycotts of the Immigrant Spring 2006, leaders of the September 22 “Millions of Voices March for Immigration Reform” will host a PRESS LUNCH and DIALOGUE for all media and DJs in the region of Southern CA.

The Lunch is sponsored by Activist Maria Ahumada of Angel de la Comunidad and Restaurateur Aurora Rodriguez of La Serenata de Garibaldi. Since the Immigrant Spring of 2006, both Maria and Aurora have supported the fight for immigration reform, legalization and citizenship. For the March 25 and May 1s 2006 Maria’s Wilshire District offices office were used as the M25C Media Committee headquarters. La Serenata has traditionally closed every May Day March since 2006.

*All the above named contacts and other members of the MV4IR played key leading roles in the mobilizations of 2006.
