Help Marius Cover His Lawyer's Fees and Stay in the Country

Marius is a Togolese asylum-seeker, who has recently moved to Lowell to fight for asylum in the Boston federal immigration courts. Marius comes from a family of political dissidents fighting for greater democracy, and was forced to flee his country after his parents were murdered by the government. He has been threatened everywhere he's tried to rebuild his life, and last year decided to journey across South and North America to seek asylum in the United States. But Marius cannot do it alone. The Merrimack Valley Interfaith Sanctuary Network is providing housing for him, but he also needs funds for legal, medical and living expenses. We need to raise $500/month for his living expenses, plus at least $2000 in lawyer’s fees so any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated.

RALLY FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

Solidarity Lowell Rally for Reproductive Rights

Saturday, May 7, 2-4pm
Ladd & Whitney Memorial, Lowell, MA. (in front of City Hall)

Frustrated at the proposed Supreme Court decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade? Come make a visible statement standing up for your right, and the right of others, to bodily autonomy.

If the Supreme Court decides that rights must be determined at the state level, rather than the national, it will affect more than the right to make decisions about pregnancy.

See you Saturday! Bring friends and family and signs!

Mother’s Day Strike

The following day begins the national Mother’s Day Strike, a week of action running from May 8 to May 14. We need to make those who would deny us bodily autonomy understand that we have a significant impact in the world by our deliberate absence. Money talks. Visit the site for suggestions on how to support it, even if you can’t afford to not work for a week.
