Families Belong Together - Ann Arbor

Co-Sponsored by WICIR: Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights

Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating children from their families. But we won't allow it to continue.

On June 30, we're rallying around the country and in Washington, D.C., to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents!

Trump and his administration have been systematically criminalizing immigration and immigrants, from revoking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to ramping up intimidating ICE tactics.

Protest Criminal Separation of Families

Date: 
Sat, Jun 23, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

City:

On Saturday June 23rd at 12pm, Moratorium Now will convene a demonstration to condemn the horrors of family separation immigration policies, detailed in many recent news reports. Families arriving in the US are being torn apart by US Border Patrol. The US is traumatizing children by ripping them away from their families to be held in concentration camps and tent cities and then trafficked through adoption agencies or worse.

We Demand an End to the Kent County Contract with ICE

Date: 
Thu, Jun 28, 2018 - 8:00am to 9:00am

The Kent County government currently has a contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This contract is causing tremendous harm to immigrant families and we demand that the Kent County Commissioners terminate the contract with ICE.

Join us at 8am at Calder Plaza for a brief Press Conference and bring signs. Afterwards we will attend the Kent County Commission meeting and during the public comment, invite people to speak about why a contract with ICE does harm in our community. The Kent County Commission meeting is in the County building, third floor, Room 310.

Join us at Senator Gary Peters' town hall!

Sat, Jun 16, 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

City:

Everyone is invited to join us at Senator Peters town hall! We'll ask questions, and encourage our senator to resist Trump more strongly.

QUESTIONS FOR SEN. PETERS

1. Will you co-sponsor the Keep Families Together Act so that children are not separated from their parents at the border when attempting to immigrate?
2. Why did you co-sponsor the Bank Lobbyist Act that rolls back part of Dodd/Frank, and make our economy more vulnerable to another Great Recession caused by big banks?
3. Will you co-sponsor the assault weapons bill in the Senate?

This week's Call to Activism party at the WCDP office in Ypsi will focus on the inhumane practice of separating children from their parents at the border. Come at 6:30 for dinner & conversation. We'll begin making phone calls at 7 p.m. Come out & make a difference!

What is a call to activism party? It's a chance to meet like-minded people over a light dinner we provide. Each week, we discuss a Michigan legislative issue and then make advocacy calls to fellow strong Democrats to assist them in taking action.

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.
