Join us Tuesday July 2 as we join the nation in protesting the horrific treatment of migrants at the southern border and urge Senator Toomey to take action to close the camps!

WHERE and WHEN: Tuesday at noon at the Grant Building (310 Grant Street).

BRING: A letter explaining why this is important.

BACKGROUND (Quoted From MoveOn.org)

Children denied soap and toothbrushes, crowded into unsafe conditions. Separated from their families, subject to cruel treatment that leads to lasting traumas. And some dying in custody—or dying with parents as they cross the Rio Grande.

We've seen the images and heard the stories coming out of child detention centers. Horrifically, these conditions aren't an accident. They are the byproduct of an intentional strategy by the Trump administration to terrorize immigrant communities and criminalize immigration—from imprisoning children in inhumane conditions to threatening widespread raids to break up families to covering up reports of immigrants dying in U.S. custody and abuses by ICE and CBP agents.

It’s going to take all of us to close the camps.

This Tuesday, July 2, while members of Congress are home for the Fourth of July holiday, we will gather at 12 p.m. noon local time at their local offices in protest. Our demands:

Close the Camps
Not One Dollar for Family Detention� and Deportation
Bear Witness and Reunite Families
