Latino Youth Make Immigration Reform Social Media Movement

World Wide Web – Yes, you read the location correctly. Latino youth create an online movement for immigration reform by breaking records.

They created an alliance with the likes of Condeleeza Rice, Russell Simmons, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Arnold Schwarzenneger, just to name a few. They launched on May 22 & 23 where they introduced the hashtag movement #iMarch.

For two days last week they hosted google hangouts by celebrities and politicians that shared their support in passing immigration reform.

The initial launch was to put pressure on lawmakers to pass the reform bill. They are asking participants in the march to tweet or write their local senators in support. To learn more about the movement watch the video or follow this link :http://www.marchforinnovation.com
