The anti immigrant sentiment out of this administration is consistent. This has emboldened other conservative radicals to take a cruel stance on immigration in hopes of getting elected in 2018. We will not let that happen. We will organize, fight, and win!

Crowd Safety Training National Assembly

Date: 
Sun, Sep 2, 2018 - 2:30pm to 5:00pm

City:

Cosecha GR needs people, especially allies who can be trained as marshals for actions that Cosecha GR organizes. The role of marshals is to keep people safe from violence, the violence of racist individuals, hate groups and police.

Immediately after this training you'll have the opportunity to put these skills into practice. Cosecha, as part of their National Assembly, will be doing actions right after we get done with this training.

Deadline Day - Release and Reunite All Immigrant Families

Date: 
Thu, Jul 26, 2018 - 7:00pm to Fri, Jul 27, 2018 - 10:00pm

City:

The court mandated deadline to reunite all families separated by ICE is fast approaching on July 26th. Currently, DHS has not been able to confirm they've even matched every child with their parent in custody, and less than one fifth have been reunited.

Even if they do, the Trump/Sessions DoJ will still be detaining them. This is reunification in cages, not community.
