OneAmerica Executive Director Roxana Norouzi

OneAmerica Executive Director Roxana Norouzi explains what a recent settlement with Yakima County over alleged Voting Rights Act violations means for Latinos during a news conference outside the Yakima County Courthouse on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021.

Immigrant-rights activists will rally in downtown Walla Walla Tuesday, October 11, as part of a statewide protest to demand that Democrats in Congress follow through on promises for a path to citizenship, according to a press release.

Activists will gather in Land Title Plaza from 4:45-6 p.m. Tuesday.

It is one of at least nine rallies planned across Washington state as part of a national Day of Action organized by immigrant-rights organizations OneAmerica and the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network.

“This is the closest we’ve ever come to winning a pathway to citizenship,” wrote Roxana Norouzi, executive director of OneAmerica, in a press release. “We are demanding Congress and Vice President Harris keep their promises and provide permanent relief and protection for our undocumented communities.”
