NOTE: Lots of changes to this event since it was first posted here. Make sure to check out the organizer’s post (linked above) for any other last minute changes!!!
Join in this protest of so-called “zero tolerance” immigration policies put forth by the Trump administration and AT Jeff Sessions. In the past few weeks, nearly 2,000 children have been seized from their families and are being held in detention centers. This has been done despite the fact that illegally crossing the US border without a criminal record is a misdemeanor crime, and that crossing the border to seek asylum is not a crime at all.
Meet us on Saturday, June 23rd in the field at Waters Elementary School (4540 N Campbell), in Lincoln Square, where we’ll be rallying at 9AM and marching south on Lincoln to Ashland/Belmont.
We will be joined by speakers U.S. Rep. Mik Quigley,
Ed Yohnka from the ACLU, Sameena Mustafa, Jesus Chuy Campuzano, Andre Vasquez, Maggie O’Keefe, Dianne Daleiden, Ugo Okere, and Chirayu Patel
All are welcome! Please feel free to bring young children to this family-friendly event!
