Families Belong Together Rally - Ann Arbor

Date: 
Thu, Jun 14, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

*Please note: Rally time moved back to 7 p.m.

We will hear from local residents who have had family members caught up in the ICE deportation machine.

We will also raise money for Demba Bagayoko. Demba has lived in Ann Arbor for 17 years and is facing deportation to Mali. We hope to retain a lawyer for him by his hearing on July 23rd. With no legal representation he will not be in a good position trying to go up against ICE in the courtroom by himself.
