Join the Florida Caravan for Immigration Reform “Making the Road to Citizenship”

Say Yes Launch MiamiFrom March 1 to the 10th, undocumented families, farmworkers and Dreamers will travel throughout Florida to raise awareness about the importance of an Immigration Reform that keeps our families together and provides a real and inclusive path to citizenship.

We will be sharing our immigration stories, talking about how our current immigration system has affected our lives and separated millions of families, and about why we need a new immigration system. Along the road, we will join rallys, farmworkers in the fields, and important cultural events.

Check out the itinerary, get on your car and JOIN US! Together we can make the road to citizenship!
