Coverage by Student Freedom Riders

Students on the Freedom Rides are posting their experience at haceculturaonline.org. Check it out.

"Inspired by the Freedom Riders of the Civil Rights Movement, the Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride sets out from 9 major cities with a message of hope and self determination. Immigrant workers and supporters are working for protection of their civil rights and civil liberties as individuals living and paying taxes in the United States. The goal of the Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride is to draw a new map leading to workers' legalization, citizenship and family reunification.

Northeastern Illinois University Chicago Teachers' Center, hACE Project, SEIU and the GEAR UP Alliance, will be working with the Chicago Public School teachers, students and their families to follow the Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride with curriculum activities, on-line connection to Riders on the buses and culminating art projects that demonstrate youth's relationship to these issues and their understanding of these critical civic issues."
