Culpeper, Va.—Virginia Organizing will host a screening and discussion of the immigration documentaryThe Dream is Now on Monday, June 2, at 6 p.m. at El Rincon Hispano (215 S East Street, Culpeper, VA 22701).
Virginia Organizing leader and owner of El Rincon Hispano Hugo Vargas said, “Immigration reform is important to the entire Culpeper community and all Virginians because we need comprehensive reform to protect families.”
Leaders will also call on U.S. Representative and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to allow a vote on comprehensive immigration reform. Representative Cantor, who represents Culpeper, has consistently blocked any immigration legislation from coming to the House floor for a vote.
