Immigration advocacy trip to DC | April 7-11th
Yesterday, members of Orlando YAYA traveled to Washington, D.C., to take action with farm workers who are advocating for a more worker inclusive immigration reform.
Yesterday, upon arrival, YAYAs gave a presentation at the Ravensworth Baptist Church Alliance Convocation about the work of YAYA and how to be in solidarity with farm workers.
Today and tomorrow, YAYAs will join farm workers from across the country advocating our representatives for an immigration reform bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for farm workers. On Wednesday, YAYAs will join immigrants, and farm workers for the big immigrant rally to take place in the afternoon.
Please consider supporting the work of YAYA in DC by making an on-line tax-deductible donation.
