For the fifth consecutive year, IDEPSCA (the Institute of Popular Education of Southern California), St. Peter’s Italian Church and Casa Italiana will host our Annual Thanksgiving celebration at Casa Italiana to benefit the low-income community of Los Angeles.
As a symbol of gratitude for the many individuals who in solidarity have shown their support for an immigrant reform, we will march for the legalization of our immigrant friends and families of our communities.
After we march, approximatly 1,200 individuals will be fed on the morning of Tuesday November 26th and 400 families will receive a turkey. The low-income and working community is one that has seen itself greatly affected by the current economic crisis. In the face of their struggles, additional burdens have been placed on them such as cut backs in social programs and job stagnation (as evident in the current drop in the number of jobs coming into the IDEPSCA worker centers).
We are honored that Senator Gil Cedillo will join us
