A diverse crowd gathered in prayer in Davenport today, to take a stand about immigration.
It's all part of the national "dream for all campaign".
More than 1,200 congregations across the country are asking the government to help immigrants gain citizenship and live the American dream. The Quad Cities interfaith, held a vigil at the Irish memorial on 2nd street.
Organizers say they want to send the message, we are all immigrants and shouldn't discriminate.
"There's movement now in the political system towards immigration reform. We want representatives and senators to know that we're aware of the issue and we would like to show them in a visible way we're paying attention," says Rick Crowell, Immigration Task Force, QC Interfaith.
QC interfaith along with the national campaign will continue to raise awareness about immigration reform over the coming weeks.
