The NC Collective organized a candlelight vigil for the rights of immigrants

Raleigh.- December 6, 2021, The NC Collective organized a candlelight vigil for immigration rights. It was held in front of the offices of Senator Thom Tillis in downtown Raleigh. More than 20 community leaders from different regions of North Carolina attended the event.

The vigil that began at 7:00 pm was a call to the Senate to pass Build Back Better with immigration included. Pastor Ricardo Correa from Mount Sinai in Durham said at the prayer vigil: “We are here for the welfare of our families.”

Ana Blackburn of the North Carolina Poor People’s Campaign and Elsa Huerta of El Centro Hispano called on the Senate to include immigration protections in the reconciliation budget package. Other attendees shared their immigration stories and acknowledged that the fight will continue until we win citizenship for all.

“Our immigrant workers have helped us throughout the pandemic. It is time to create a more just and humane immigration system. “- Antelmo Salazar, president of El Colectivo NC.

“We unite and rise as one voice because when we rise together as one voice we are stronger.” – Ana Blackburn, Co-Chair of the North Carolina Poor Campaign.

“Our communities have waited too long. It is a question of equity, dignity and justice. Most Americans agree: immigration is a good thing. It’s time for Congress to bow down and carry out immigration reform. “- Elsa Huerta, Coordinator at El Centro Hispano NC.
