Sign Up for Lobby Day - Wed. Feb 29th

This year, the Illinois Coalition of Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) members have voted to focus their efforts on getting drivers certificates for undocumented immigrants

We cannot win this fight without the support of groups across the state. 

La Colectiva is dedicated to these efforts but we cannot win this effort in Central Illinois without your help. 

If we win Drivers Certificates, it will eliminate much of the work we do around Secure Communities to keep our communities out of jail. 

ICIRR will be having their first statewide Springfield Lobby Day on Wednesday, February 29th. We need to make sure that our communities come out to show our local representatives that we mean business. 

The more buses we have from communities around the state, the more we can make our voices heard. La Colectiva and C-U Immigration Forum are organizing a bus (maybe two?) to Springfield. 

Sign up, help us lobby and win driving certificates for our communities! (The bus will be leaving at 8:15AM and will be back in Champaign by 6:00PM)
