09 Jul Families Belong Together,
On June 30, stand up for what’s right. Women For Progress is working with two opportunities to protest the current administration’s “zero-tolerance policy” on the border, a policy that has lead to family separation and detainment. Here are the details for both events:
FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER NJ March –
Newark, New Jersey
New Jersey Defends Families
Nueva Jersey Defiende a Las Familia
This event is organized and supported by BlueWaveNJ, Make the Road New Jersey, New Jersey Alliance for Immigrant Justice, New Jersey Working Families Alliance, Wind of the Spirit, and Women for Progress.
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. This must end NOW.
WE WILL NOT ALLOW IT TO CONTINUE. On Saturday, June 30th, we will march in Newark, New Jersey, in solidarity with marches and rallies in Washington D.C. and throughout the country. Join SENATOR CORY BOOKER as we begin at Newark City Hall at 11 a.m. and march to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Center on Broad Street. We will tell our federal and state officials that ALL FAMILIES, at the border, across our nation, and here in New Jersey deserve to be protected.
RALLY FOR HUMANITY-
Borough Hall, Harding Plaza
Glen Rock, New Jersey
Join us to support #FamiliesBelongTogether at Rally for Humanity.
Be seen. Be heard. Let our government know that cruelty to families at the US border is NOT what our country represents. We demand that families be reunited immediately.
Join us for a local demonstration at Borough Hall where we will celebrate immigration, acknowledge the beauty of our diversity and share inspirational words and music.
This event is FREE but we need to know how many people to expect for security purposes. All are welcome. This is a family-friendly experience.
Parking: Please use the train station parking lot. No permit is needed there to park after 6 PM. The event will end around 8:30 PM.
Sponsored by: Glen Rock After the March, Women for Progress, Women of Action – Fair Lawn, Ridgewood JOLT, Ramsey PINS, NJ5 Coalition & Teaneck Women Together
