El Piolín will be walking...and talking!...for immigration reform

Latino radio personality Eddie “El Piolín” Sotelo, host of Piolín por la mañana on KSCA (101.9 FM) in Los Angeles, will join the lineup of speakers for this Sunday's March for America in support of immigration reform.

This is far from El Piolín's first foray into this issue. In 2006 and 2007, he helped prove the power of Spanish language radio to mobilize the masses in the comprehensive immigration reform battles. A formerly undocumented immigrant, El Piolín gave a significant amount of airplay to undocumented immigrants. In 2006, his audience helped turnout 500,000 people at Los Angeles marches against anti-immigration legislation.

In 2007, he encouraged his listeners to recruit U. S. citizens to sign a letter proposing an immigration reform. This resulted in over 1 million letters sent to Congress and grabbed the attention of political leadership.

Join El Piolín and come to the National Mall to March for America...your land and our land, as Woody Guthrie said.
