Immigration reform


TRP has partnered with organizations such as the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights to advocate for comprehensive immigration reform and rights.

2012 was a very important year for our immigration reform advocacy initiatives. TRP hosted US Senator Dick Durbin at La Casa for a press conference in which Senator Durbin and IL Representative Luis Guitierrez spoke about the DREAM Act and Deferred Action.

TRP staff and dozens of Pilsen residents also took part in an end-of-year Get Out the Vote rally to encourage voter participation and advocate for Illinois legislature that would allow undocumented immigrants to attain drivers licenses and help make our roads safer. See photos from the event on our Facebook page here.
