Durham rally seeks to foster fairness, justice for immigrants
DURHAM (AP) — Social justice advocates in New Hampshire are making the rejection of racism, xenophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment the themes of their annual May Day Rally for Immigrant Justice.
The rally takes place Sunday at 4:30 p.m. at the Durham campus of the University of New Hampshire.
The multi-cultural rally will feature speeches, dance and music.
Eva Castillo of the Manchester-based New Hampshire Alliance for Immigrants and Refugees says it's more important than ever to speak out for policies rooted in compassion, justice and fairness.
Event sponsors say May 1 — celebrated in many countries as International Workers Day — has also become a day for immigrants and their allies to rally in the United States.
The rally takes place on the law in front of Thompson Hall.
