Fuller Seminary students, staff march on Pasadena City Hall for immigration reform

Hundreds gathered to pray and demonstrate for comprehensive immigration reform

Immigration Reform Rally March

Over 100 students, faculty and community supporters marched from Fuller Theological Seminary to Pasadena City Hall asking for comprehensive immigration reform. The rally was organized by Fuller's Peace and Justice Advocates student group, L.A. Voice and G92. President Mark Labberton, Associate Provost Juan Martínez and Professor Tommy Givens were among the leaders of the rally.

"We sense it is a crucial moment for us to send a strong message in favor of immigration reform, especially from evangelicals, who are often associated with opposition to this kind of change. We chose City Hall because it is the most clearly public space in terms of governance so we'd like to symbolize our attempt to take who we are as an evangelical institution and to try to speak clearly into the public square," said Givens.
