Just got word that U.S. Congressman Luis Gutierrez will join Congresswoman Marcia Fudge in Cleveland this coming Monday - October 11, 2010 starting at 4:00 at Mt. Sanai Church - 7510 Woodland Avenue. As you know Gutierrez has been one of our national champions in Congress leading the fight for Immigration Reform and the Dream Act.
The event is sponsored by HOLA, the Hispanic Alliance, Cleveland NAACP, Nueva Luz Urban Resource Center, Cleveland Jobs with Justice, Urban League of Greater Cleveland, Northshore AFL-CIO, Young Latino Network, CoalItion of HIspanic Issues in Progress and Progress Ohio.
There are many reasons why this event is important. First of all, just having a national Latino leader come to Cleveland is big and we all know he has been leading the immigration reform movement nationally. Also, there is a great Black/Latin@ coalition working together for a common purpose here. And last but just as important -- it is critical that we rally and get people excited and COMMITTED to VOTE on NOVEMBER 2!!!
