Organized by the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, the November 19th event brought together elected officials, labor unions, religious leaders, and community organizations to call for a workable solution to the broken immigration system.Participants listened to testimonies from immigrants across Illinois asking for a more fair, just, and humane immigration system for their families. Il Kwa Nori, the Chicago-based Korean American cultural troupe, also performed for the crowd of over 4000 people.
