The Long Ride

The Long Ride is a timely new 77 minute documentary about the historic 2003 Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride which sparked the new Civil Rights Movement for immigrant workers in the United States. Alarmed by increasing workplace abuses, more than 900 immigrants and allies traveled from ten cities across America to focus public attention on the plight of immigrant workers and call for reform of the broken immigration system. They were inspired by the 1961 Civil Rights Movement Freedom Riders who risked their lives fighting to end segregation. The film chronicles their journey and the on-going fight for immigrant rights to this day.  The Long Ride follows the journey of more than 100 Riders from Northern California. Film begins at 7:00pm
