'All Immigrants' rally Saturday

Oregon Action and nine community groups are organizing a rally and march Saturday during the annual Medford Multicultural Fair.

The "We Are All Immigrants" rally is set at 11 a.m. at Medford's Vogel Plaza at the corner of West Main Street and Central Avenue downtown.

At Vogel Plaza, Arizona immigrant rights leader Elias Bermudez will address the group to build support for comprehensive immigration reform.

Then the group will march east to the multicultural fair at Hawthorne Park.

" Every one of us comes from somewhere else in the world. We have reason to be proud of our immigrant heritage. Now, it's time to build support for just, comprehensive immigration reform," said Caren Caldwell of Oregon Action.

Other organizers include the Ashland United Church of Christ, Community Response Team, Rogue Valley Citizen Council, Southern Oregon Multicultural Association, Unete, Peace House, Social Action & Justice Committee of the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Ashland Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice.
