Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride
Earlier this fall, thousands of immigrant workers and immigrant rights advocates participated in a Freedom Ride, riding buses from eleven cities to Washington, D.C., and New York City. Among them was a busload from the Twin Cities. They were greeted by rallies in dozens of cities along the way, and they lobbied Congress for immigrants' and workers' rights and demonstrated the centrality of immigrants to the future of the labor movement. The AFL-CIO and many unions were prominent sponsors of this project.
