Addison group works to bring immigrants 'out of the shadows'
ADDISON — More than 150 protesters — many wearing black T-shirts that read "Out of the Shadows" — recently gathered at Addison Village Hall to hear the stories of undocumented families affected by deportation and immigration policies.
The March 16 demonstration was the second annual for the Latino Youth Action League (LOYAL), which formed in June 2011. The local group talks to high school students about continuing their education and promotes workshops through the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health and other immigrant organizations.
Their "Drop the I Word" campaign also is aimed to end the branding of immigrants as illegal aliens.
