GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Saturday was a big day for labor and civil rights in Greensboro as several groups held rallies across the city as part of the “National Day of Dignity and Respect Rally and Canvass for Working People.”

Groups like Working America and the Guilford County NAACP rallied to urge representative Howard Coble to pass the immigration reform.

Participants went knocking on doors encouraging more people to call on congress to take action. The groups want to pass an immigration reform with a path to citizenship.

The state director of Working America, Carolyn Smith, said this is the time to make sure congress hears their call for dignity and respect.
