They plan to march to Chicano Park in Barrio Logan.

Groups involved include American Friends Service Committee, Association of Raza Educators, the International Socialist Organization, San Diego Immigration Rights Consortium, San Diego Education Association, Service Employees International Union and National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals.
