Resist Trump Tuesday Rally: Family Detention is NOT a Solution
July 3, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
As mentioned in the Mama’s Week of Action Event happening later TODAY at 5:30pm at the Northwest Park Block in Eugene:
“Join us for this action protest during Mama’s Week Of Action as cities across the country mobilize for a week of protest!
Detaining entire families is not a solution, it is a jail sentence.
It won’t fix the humanitarian crisis that Trump created. It will put families and children in jail indefinitely.
Children belong with their families and in their communities, not in cages or behind bars in even worse conditions.
Children must be where they can receive the care they need and ensure their rights are respected.
Families seeking safety in our country need protection and opportunity, not detention.
This administration needs to stop traumatizing our children and their parents.
The families that come to our country fleeing violence and poverty must be protected and safe.
Our demand is clear and not negotiable: Trump’s policies of separating and detaining families must be stopped immediately and families must be reunified.
We will have music, speakers, food, postcard writing table, crafts for kids and a silent auction. All proceeds go to fund the LatinX Alliance of Lane County.”
Calls, letters, texts, faxes, rallies, need to be made to put pressure on MoC’s to act on the heinous DOJ policy and to hold accountable those enacting this policy at Customs and ICE to help protect these families!
