Chicago, IL - Organizers stood proudly, with their fists up, behind the Immigrant Youth Justice League's new banner as they launched the Equal Rights Campaign on the University of Chicago quad May 20. The incredible eight schools represented, and many others already on board, reported in their speeches how the demands had been delivered to college and university presidents across the city.

A number of undocumented students bravely announced their immigration status publicly as part of their speeches and the journeys they had gone through. All were energized by the recent actions in Arizona and the new voices heard at this powerful event. The circulating clipboard to join and help filled with names quickly.
