Next week, we're going all in to insist our government close the concentration camps on our border. These events are in-person, and we need a big turnout to make our voices heard. Today's action is to clear your calendar and make time to attend these events. If you cannot attend, please let friends and family know about these events so that we can boost our turnout and make our voices heard:

Resist Trump Tuesday: Hold our Senators Accountable
11:45 a.m. outside the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building:
Senators Murray and Cantwell voted for the Senate version of the immigration funding bill last week. While the House bill had guardrails to prevent the Trump administration from using this money to imprison more people or build the wall, the Senate version did not.
We have our regular meeting with the Senate staffers on Tuesday. Let's make sure they know that this vote is completely unacceptable.

At the specific request of those directly impacted, Saturday (July 13) will be a NOISIER Community day of SUPPORT at the NW Detention Center in Tacoma. We need lots of powerful voices so all detained people and any visiting families can hear our support. We also will learn meaningful ways we can help in the sustained fight against immigrant detention, such as:
- Contribute to the Fair Bond Fund and Free Our Neighbors Bond fund https://fairfightbondfund.org https://www.freeourneighbors.org/
- Sign up to volunteer at the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network https://medium.com/@waisn/building-our-defense-line-under-the-threat-of-immigration-raids-a9f721583267
