We Make America Great Walk – Charlotte to Raleigh – Nov 2015

We Make America Great Walk – Nov 8 – Nov 20, 2015
(In English first, then Spanish)

This event is called the “We Make America Great Walk.” As you may know, Donald Trump has been saying many negative things about immigrants. His campaign slogan is “Making America Great”. We refuse to let him own a positive message to promote negativity.  So, we have co-opted his message to show that immigrants make America great.

Join the “We Make America Great” Walk! Walk in support of working families!


The walk will start at Marshall Park in Charlotte, on Sunday, November 8, and end in Raleigh on Friday, November 20th, 2015.  The approximate distance is 167 miles.

Background: On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced his Executive Action on Immigration, benefiting over 5 million immigrants and their families.

Under the Executive Action, the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) was created. Also, the program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which provides relief for undocumented youth who qualify, was expanded.

Unfortunately, this year, 26 governors and attorneys general, including NC’s own governor, Pat McCrory, are suing our president, in order to stop the implementation of these programs.

Join us!  It will be a relay walk and each day different groups of people will walk an average of 15 miles. Each mile walked will represent $1,180,000 in tax revenue from immigrants, reaching a total of $197 million.


Atencion Por favor!!!!!!

Este evento se llama “Hagemos América Grande!”  Como ustedes saben, Donald Trump dice muchas cosas negativas sobre los inmigrantes.
Su lema de campaña es “Haciendo América Grande”. Nos negamos a dejar que posee un mensaje positivo para promover la negatividad. Así, hemos cooptado su mensaje para mostrar que los inmigrantes hacen grande a Estados Unidos.

¡Únase a la Caravana Hagemos América Grande! ¡Camine en apoyo de familias trabajadoras!

La caravan comenzará a Marshall Park en Charlotte, el domingo 8 de noviembre y terminará en Raleigh, el viernes, 20 de noviembre de 2015. La distancia aproximada es de 167 millas.

Fondo: El 20 de Noviembre del 2014, Presidente Obama anunció su Acción Ejecutiva sobre Inmigración, beneficiando a mas de 5 millones de personas y familias inmigrantes.

Bajo la Acción Ejecutiva, se creó el programa DAPA, el cual daría alivio a padres con hijos Estadounidenses o residentes permanentes. También se expandió el programa DACA, el cual da alivio para jóvenes indocumentados quienes califican.

Desafortunadamente, este año, 26 gobernadores y fiscales estatales, incluyendo al gobernador de NC Pat McCrory están demandando legalmente a nuestro presidente, para poner un alto a estos programas.

Únase!  Será una caminata de relevo y cada día diferentes grupos de personas tomarán turnos caminando un promedio de 15 millas diarias. Cada milla caminada representará $1,180,000 en impuestos de inmigrantes, llegando a un total de $197 millones.
