Monday was a historic day for the Campaign for Citizenship in California. The pilgrims raising awareness about the need for a pathway to citizenship finished their 21-day, 285-mile journey, and thousands of supporters (including our leaders) traveled to Bakersfield to celebrate with them. We also used the opportunity to call on Congressman Kevin McCarthy, the majority whip in the House of Representatives, to support a pathway to citizenship and urge the House to take up a vote on immigration legislation.
The energy on the way to Bakersfield was high, and it was even higher when we got to the action in Bakersfield. Check out the highlights from our trip.
