The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) will hold a Thanksgiving march on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 9 a.m. to honor immigrant contributions to the United States and remember the 1.5 million immigrants deported since the beginning of the Obama administration.
Thanksgiving meals will also be served to 500 people, along with food basket giveaways to needy families. The procession will begin at the North Hollywood Day Laborer Center at 11841 Sherman Way and conclude at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church at 7800 Vineland Ave. in Sun Valley.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles was formed in 1986 to advance the human and civil rights of immigrants and refugees in Los Angeles; promote harmonious multi-ethnic and multi-racial human relations; and through coalition-building, advocacy, community education and organizing, empower immigrants and their allies to build a more just society, according to its website.
