Calling Teachers for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Update from Teachers for Comprehensive Immigration Reform:

Hello TSJ friends,

We just got back from the 250,000 Immigration Reform March in DC. Needless to say, I'm exhausted. However, I've come back reenergized!

Illinois Teachers and Educators! Here is your opportunity to advocate for your undocumented students. Teachers know first-hand the impact that the broken immigration system has on our students. Undocumented students deserve to have an opportunity at a real future!

We are currently working on a teacher-led action on April 10th to pressure Congress into passing Immigration Reform this year.  Let’s use the momentum from this weekend’s historic march, get yourself and any other teachers you know to the table. Our work isn’t over yet!

Let YOUR actions speak louder than words!

Tourists flock to Jamaica to escape realities as it is known for its sandy beaches, laid back life style, and crystal blue water.  However, the people of Jamaica can't escape the impact of the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Inter-American Development Bank in their daily lives.

The feature film 
Life and Debt tells the story of the day to day struggles of individual Jamaicans whose livelihood is determined by U.S. and other foreign economic agencies.  Unfortunately, this story is not true just for Jamaica; the parallel effects of structural adjustment are astounding and seen in Haiti and beyond.
