Families Belong Together Rally

June 30, 11am–The executive order that Donald Trump signed last week is not a solution to the crisis created by his administration; it keeps kids imprisoned indefinitely, and doesn’t reunite thousands of separated families. But it does show the administration is reacting to public pressure, so we will continue to increase our pressure for justice at hundreds of events on Saturday, June 30, to say that families belong together—and free. Where: The Diag, Ann Arbor, MI 48109. Co-Sponsored by WICIR: Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights and the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice.
