Immigrant workers are the backbone of the Michigan economy. Industries like agriculture, construction, and manufacturing depend on immigrant labor.

Ann Arbor: Bus to Change the Debate

*This is transportation* Official event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/459306721523008/

In the first primary debates in Miami, only 15 minutes were dedicated to climate change, and only ½ of the candidates got to answer crappy questions. That is unacceptable. That’s why we’ll be turning out en masse in Detroit, to demand better for our future.

Vigil to Abolish ICE in Kent County

Date: 
Wed, Jul 24, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Join us for a vigil to expose ICE violence, to say stop separating families at the border and in Kent County, and to demand that ICE leave Kent County. Everyday we are hearing news about all the atrocities and human rights violations happening to immigrants at the US/Mexican border, which are injustices being perpetrated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. We know that ICE agents are doing harm on a weekly basis here in Kent County, separating families and detaining people for no other reason than they are undocumented or because they are driving without a license.

We are facing a crisis in the United States. Children are dying, not being given the basics of bathing, general hygiene and are traumatized. This is horrific, un-American, and morally wrong, and it is being done by our own federal government.

A coalition of organizations, people and friends are planning a major protest rally regarding the atrocities happening at our Southern board. We must stand up and be the voice of the voiceless and we must express our disgust collectively.
