Friends -

Please join Michigan United, APIA Vote, and many others for an interfaith march to support immigrants, Muslims and refugees.

The event will start at Cherry Hill United Methodist Church in Canton and proceed to a mosque, Masjid Bilal, one mile away.

It is the February recess-- a time when members of Congress are back in their districts. It is important that we send an urgent message of solidarity -- people of all faiths stand together against the Muslim ban, the wall, and the deportations that separate families.

Immigrant Solidarity Protest against ICE Detention Center

Date: 
Fri, Feb 17, 2017 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm

Workers, documented and undocumented, unite! A general strike has been called for on February 17th 2017. Racist mass deportations have already begun in Detroit and throughout the country. Immigrants are being scapegoated and targeted by the Trump Administration and their reactionary supporters in order to divide the working class and distract us from identifying the real threat and our common enemy: Hate groups, U.S. imperialism, and the bosses. We will start by demonstrating at the main entrance of the ICE Detention & Deportation Center.
