The official Families Belong Together rally is today, June 30th, 11:00am outside the SeaTac Detention Center (where mothers separated from their children are being held).
Today's rally will kick off a week-long series of actions to protest Trump’s racist and bigoted southern border policies, all led by the Families Belong Together Coalition of Washington - which includes Washington’s biggest immigrants’ rights organizations like Casa Latina, Washington Dream Coalition, OneAmerica, and Northwest Immigrants’ Rights Project. The full list of events is posted at the end of this email!
Whether or not you can attend, here is an easy way to support the effort from home: make a donation so that the organizers can cover their costs! Any amount helps. Donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/families-belong-together-washington
The GoFundMe link also includes a list of demands to both our Federal and State governments and to Washington businesses who have been working with ICE.
