An Immigrants Rights Rally in San Jose, California

By Angelo Lopez
January 19, 2017

On Saturday January 14, 2017, I went to an immigrants rights rally in San Jose, California. I was debating whether to go or not, as I'm still recovering from a flu that I've had for about a week and a half. San Jose's City Hall is only a 15 minute drive, though, and my brother and niece wanted to go. So I took my camera and went.

Wandering through the crowd, I met some Filipino American activists who I knew. I introduced them to my brother and niece and we talked about immigrant issues, especially those pertaining to Filipinos and the DACA program.

I was heartened to see a great diversity of people attend. I saw Muslim Americans, LGBT individuals, many women's rights activists, several members of SEIU.

We went on a march throughout downtown San Jose and listened to a few speeches. When my niece started getting bored, we went to Psycho Donuts to get some snacks and then we went home.
