On Wednesday afternoon, thousands of people marched in cities around the United States in support of comprehensive immigration reform, at a moment when Congress is debating various immigration policies, including amnesty for millions of immigrants who entered the country without documentation.

Photographer Francisco Barradas documented the march in San Francisco, which ended with a rally at the Federal Building downtown. The event was meant to urge local and state leaders to support inclusive immigration reform on a national scale.

San Francisco’s march was organized by a long list of groups: Asian Law Caucus, ASPIRE, ACLU, Chinese for Affirmative Action, Causa Justa: Just Cause, Educators for Fair Consideration, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, Mujeres Unidas y Activas, Out for Immigration, SEIU Local 87, SEIU USWW, SEIU 1021, SF Labor Council, SFOP, Young Workers United, California Immigrant Policy Center and many others.
