Families Belong Together - Ann Arbor
Co-Sponsored by WICIR: Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights and the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice
Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating children from their families. But we won't allow it to continue.
On June 30, we're rallying around the country and in Washington, D.C., to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents!
Trump and his administration have been systematically criminalizing immigration and immigrants, from revoking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to ramping up intimidating ICE tactics.
Let's send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together.
Wear White The lead partners of this action are calling upon participants to wear white as a striking visual symbol that will also connect attendees in solidarity to each-other and channel historic social justice movements unified by one color of clothing. We believe if we can get a significant portion of the crowd to wear white, it will provide a compelling image for the media coverage and to capture the public's imagination.
