"We are one family:" Activists march in Wisconsin and nationwide for worker & immigrant rights

Activists took to the streets, walking nearly 2 miles from the Voces De La Frontera headquarters to the Milwaukee County Courthouse. Charter buses brought people from all over the state for the March.

As part of the movement, people were encouraged to withdraw children from school. Businesses were asked to close for the day. But, this wasn't only isolated to Wisconsin. Hundreds of cities across the nation joined the movement. 

"To show support from our community, my community to this community. I'm from Brownsville. This issue affects us directly with the laborers at the dairy, my neighbors, so I feel it close to home," said protester Mark Kelderman.

"We're saying that we are one family, the family of man. We are not separated by race, religion, by choice of gender. We are together," said Protester Eilene Stevens.
