Martinez, president of the Cesar E. Chavez Legacy and Educational Foundation.
"We feel betrayed by the Washington politics once again, so it's time to shift gears and call on President Obama to act" pointing out that most likely Congress will fail to approve a comprehensive immigration reform in 2013.
The Cesar Chavez immigration reform forum is organized to involve the community at large in this public debate by inviting experts in the subject such as David Bacon. David Bacon is author of Illegal People - How Globalization Creates Migration and Criminalizes Immigrants, The Children of NAFTA, Communities Without Borders and The Right to Stay Home in which he makes a case of how US foreign policy displace Latino workers forcing them to leave their home communities to survive. He Travels frequently to Mexico, the Philippines, and Iraq. Bacon also hosts a half-hour weekly radio show on labor, immigration and the global economy on KPFA-FM, and is a frequent guest on KQED-TV's This Week in Northern California. For twenty years, Bacon was a labor organizer for unions in which immigrant workers made up a large percentage of the membership. Those include the United Farm Workers, the United Electrical Workers, the International Ladies' Garment Workers, the Molders Union and others. Those experiences gave him a unique insight into changing conditions in the workforce, the impact of the global economy and migration, and how
these factors influence the struggle for workers' rights. For more information contact; Jaime P. Martinez, president of the Cesar E. Chavez Legacy and Education Foundation at 210-842-9339 or email@example.com.
