“Families Belong Together.” That’s the theme for a rally this Saturday morning on the Geneva lakefront, in Washington D.C., and in 600 other communities across the country.
Organizers of the Geneva rally say their message will be: Families Belong Together, Families United Not Divided, and Where Are the Children?
The Geneva rally begins at 10 Saturday morning.
The Geneva event is co-sponsored by the following local immigrant advocacy groups:
FLX Solidarity Network: Ally organization currently working on the Green Light Campaign, Law Enforcement engagement, and sanctuary efforts.
Worker Justice Center of NY: “The Worker Justice Center of New York pursues justice for those denied human rights with a focus on agricultural and other low-wage workers, through legal representation, community empowerment and advocacy for institutional change.” Some of their current projects include: local advocacy, legal support, sanctuary campaigns, and rapid response.
Rural & Migrant Ministry: “We work with rural leaders, both young and older, who are committed to equality and cooperative opportunity, especially within agricultural systems. We also support people in faith, labor and university communities who seek to stand with rural leaders as allies.”
Adelante Student Voices: “ADELANTE is a safe space for undocumented students in NYS to explore their legal status and routes to college with their peers and professional staff. Members join our network by attending a summer session, and continue to develop their educational roadmap through mentorship and quarterly reunions. We also work with students to research new policy directions and offer consulting to colleges and universities that wish to welcome more undocumented students.”
