The protests, political actions, and civil disobedience highlight the issues that are taking place, without it, the average citizen would be oblivious to what is going on, who it actually affects and how it will affect them.

It is about one of the only things we can do to get control of how media will portray us, otherwise, to the average voter we would all be spanish only speaking farm workers with no education stealing jobs and causing small crimes around the city with no intention of following the laws and perhaps a flawed perception about how one really attains legal status believing our cause to be potentially a choice to get more benefits for nothing.

However, it does not mean that it should have priority over reaching citizens, we certainly have to make sure we reach them as they are ultimately the individuals who can vote on the decisions that affect what we end up doing, but we should not focus solely on that one goal, if we did, we would not be efficient.
