Community organization Mesa Latina and supporters from more than 30 local groups assembled outside the Governor’s Mansion in St. Paul to rally support for immigration reform, worker’s rights, and MN bill HF348, also known as the ‘Driver’s License Bill,’ which would allow individuals in Minnesota to apply for a driver’s license regardless of their current immigration status. The rally was followed by a three-mile march down Summit Avenue to the steps of the State Capitol building, where the crowd swelled to almost 2,000 people.

Coverage of issues and events that affect Central Corridor neighborhoods and communities is funded in part by a grant from Central Corridor Funders Collaborative.

  • I saw this as everyone marched past my house on Summit. It was a very large group! Amazing. Was there any news coverage of it? I didn't see anything in either daily paper afterwards. And is it known what Dayton will do? - by Karen Cole on Sat, 05/03/2014 - 3:17pm
