This week is very busy for Causa, our supporters, our partners and our allies both in Oregon and in Washington D.C.  There are several events planned around Comprehensive Immigration Reform and Driver’s License Restoration. We need you to join us at one or more of following important events to send a message to our elected representatives that there must be action on driver’s licenses in Oregon and immigration reform at the federal level.


Tomorrow (Wednesday, April 10th), Causa Oregon and allies will visit the Oregon offices of U.S. Representatives Greg Walden in Bend and Peter DeFazio in Eugene.  We will urge them to support a Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill that includes a pathway to citizenship and legalization for 11 million undocumented immigrants working and living in the United States.
