Just got on a bus for the 12 hour overnight ride to Washington DC. I’m joining thousands of others who will march on the capital tomorrow demanding immigration reform. We started the afternoon in the freezing cold welcoming dozens of buses full of supporters also preparing for the same trip. Its going to be a long 36 hours, but I’m very much looking forward to being a part of this historic moment. I’m also doing some “new media” coverage as well:

ICIRR live coverage
Wish us luck!
I volunteered this morning with ICIRR to take pictures of other volunteers that were getting out the vote in Bridgeview, IL. Precinct 47 is a predominately Arab area – and the amount of young and enthusiastic volunteers was overwhelming! Most of them were going out to knock on doors, leave door hangars and in general to try to get as many people to their polling places as possible! They were also doing exit polls – and the data I saw was extraordinarily exciting! More of the pictures I took can be seen by clicking here.
