Families Belong Together - Holland area rally and march in opposition to US government policy separating undocumented and asylum-seeking parents and children - Saturday, June 30 at 11am at Centennial Park. The current administration has been cruelly separating children from their families, and even with the recent executive order, have no plans to reunite these families, and maintain a policy of detaining asylum seekers and others entering the country indefinitely.

Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to the President and Congress: Families being together is not enough, they need to be out of prison. They have broken no law by coming to our borders to seek protection. Stop housing immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers in detention centers and cages!
