Joining with labor, civic and fellow faith leaders, NETWORK’s “Nuns on the Bus” are hitting the road for a 6,500-mile, 15-state tour to raise their voices for bipartisan, commonsense immigration reform. The trip is scheduled to begin across from Ellis Island at Liberty State Park in New Jersey on May 29 and conclude with a rally in the shadow of San Francisco’s Angel Island on June 18.
Catholic Sisters on the tour are urging lawmakers to support legislation that provides a roadmap to citizenship for 11 million aspiring Americans, promotes family unity, and protects the rights of all immigrant workers.
The tour is called “NETWORK Nuns on the Bus: A Drive for Faith, Family, and Citizenship.”
I will have more on this later in the week.
