Families Belong Together!

Saturday, June 30th (see location and times below with links to RSVP)

Donald Trump and his administration have cruelly separated thousands of children from their families. Now they’re jailing families — and they haven’t yet reunified the families already brutally torn apart. But we won’t allow it to continue. On June 30, we’re rallying around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to permanently end the separation of kids from their parents. End family internment camps. End the “zero-humanity” policy that created this crisis. And reunify the children with their parents. Send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!

Detention is Separaton: Shut Down ICE!

Let’s shut down South Bay County Jail and Detention Center to demand an end to any and all cooperation with ICE. At the border, we have seen the real face of hate. Children are being lost and abused, parents are committing suicide and through all this the perpetrators are bragging about their atrocities. We need you to be on the right side of history and fight with us. We will meet at Wellington Common Park across from the Mass Ave. T Station to march to South Bay.
