“11 Days for 11 Million” in Front of Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy’s Bakersfield Office
Join us for the Farm Worker Day of Action
Thursday, December 5th at 10:30 a.m.
The broad statewide pro-immigration reform coalition of California businesses, unions, community, and faith groups will ramp up the pressure on Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, the third most powerful House Representative, by calling on him to schedule a vote for immigration reform.
Beginning Tuesday, Dec. 3, for 11 days, Californians from all walks of life will come together in Bakersfield and “occupy” Rep. McCarthy’s office until Friday, Dec. 13, the last day Congress is in session.
As part of the "11 Days for 11 Million" campaign, the UFW and UFW Foundation will be hosting a farmworker day of action. Join us to highlight the contributions of the farmworker community to the nation and demand that Rep. Kevin McCarthy acknowledge the need for a path to citizenship. Farmworkers work every single day to ensure Mr. McCarthy and the rest of Congress has food on their tables. It is time that the GOP Whip does his job and delivers on comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.
Join us as farm workers deliver the fruits of their labor as gifts to Kevin McCarthy for Christmas. Farm workers do their job. Rep McCarthy, will you do yours?
