Bay Area community and religious leaders will gather at a San Francisco church Sunday afternoon for a forum aimed at establishing an easier path to citizenship for immigrants.


Organized by the Campaign for Citizenship, attendees of the event include Illinois congressman Luis Gutierrez, and a number of local Catholic Church leaders.


They say they want President Obama and Congress to make immigration a top priority this year.
According to the campaign, 11 million people work and live in the United States as undocumented immigrants.


The forum will be held at the Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist, 1661 15th St.
