Join Voces de la Frontera at the State Capital on May 1, 2019 at 10:30am
Voces de la Frontera will be celebrating May Day in Madison this year, marching in support of restoration of drivers licenses for immigrants and in support of Gov. Evers’ budget proposal. The march will begin with a rally at the State St. entrance to the Capitol on May 1 at 10:30a.m. Bus transportation to Madison and back will be provided.
Throughout the past decade, the lack of access to licenses for immigrants has led to a significant increase in family separations due to detentions and deportations. Winning Drivers Licenses for All will not just mean that immigrant families can drive with dignity and without fear, but it will also contribute to our economy, increase public safety in our communities, and be a concrete win in the struggle against white supremacy and xenophobia.
