This rally is being merged with the press conference below, so as not to put any additional organizing burden on the impacted communities:

We are showing up in support of the press conference action being organized by leaders and activists in the immigrant and undocumented community, to stand in solidarity as allies!

We will be ready to hit the streets with our allies, on September 5th, the day when we expect Trump’s decision to discontinue DACA to be made! We need all of you to join us!

If you support immigrants’ rights, if you believe in sanctuary for all, and that undocumented or not – all immigrants deserve to be happy and live without fear of deportations – you should join us!

Every person deserves to live with respect and dignity, and there is no doubt that immigrants (especially undocumented immigrants) are currently targets of injustice under the Trump administration. Over a million immigrant youth and their families are protected from deportation by the DACA (Deffered Action for Childhood Arrivals) and TPS (Temporary Protected Status) programs. White supremacists in Washington are determined to kill these programs and expose those currently protected to the threats of racist policing, violent arrests, being locked up in detention camps, and of being deportated.

We cannot stand by idly while our undocumented sisters, brothers, and siblings are threatened. This administration needs to know that when they attack and terrorize the most vulnerable and marginalized among us, they are attacking ALL OF US and we will STAND UP AND FIGHT BACK! Join us to send a loud and clear message to this administration: NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL! OUR IMMIGRANT SIBLINGS ARE HERE TO STAY!

More details will be added below about supporting organizations. If you and your organization would like to support this action, please contact us via Direct Message.
