Support Dreamers Solidarity Gathering

Over the past five years, DACA has provided 800,000 immigrant youth protection from deportation, the opportunity for higher education and jobs, and more stability to our communities.

Please join us in peaceful solidarity with Dreamers, DACA recipients, their families and the entire immigrant community in Petalma, Sonoma County and our nation. DACA recipients in particular are threatened by this weeks' racist wrecking ball from the White House, but these young people and their families are our neighbors, friends, classmates and coworkers. Let's unite in their defense! ¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido! The people united, will never be defeated!

"We can't let people drive wedges between us... because there's only one human race." -- Dolores Huerta

Note: this vigil is on the EAST side of town at a large intersection. Please bring signs with big bold lettering so they can be seen by passing drivers.

We Love Our Neighbors Petaluma advocates creative, non-violent solutions to white supremacy and the politics of division. https://www.facebook.com/WeLoveOurNeighborsPetaluma/

If you are able please donate to United We Dream, which organizes and advocates for the dignity and fair treatment of immigrant youth and families, regardless of immigration status. United We Dream is the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation. https://unitedwedream.org/
