Important Attendance!!! Devos "Amplify" Meeting

Date: 
Thu, Jun 29, 2017 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Amplify (another Devos movement) in conjuction with the City of Grand Rapids and Rockford Construction are having a "rolling out" of this program, which is really more gentrification of poor neighborhoods. This really results in additional displacement of more poor people. Please plan to get there early, sit in front and ask the hard questions/make comments.

Rapid Response to ICE Training

This is our next Rapid Response to ICE training that is being hosted by the Grand Rapids Immigrant Solidarity Network. The training is for people who want to take action in support of the undocumented community.

This is a training specifically for what kinds of tactics we can use to respond to ICE raids and how we can mobilize people quickly to 1) prevent ICE from arresting, detaining and deporting people and 2) provide support (mutual aid) for the family members impacted by ICE raids.
