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 in Washington, D.C., and around the country 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.

Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!

ICE Protest at Richmond, CA Detention Center

June 30th is the anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, signed into law in front of the Statue of Liberty. Let's show our State and our Nation that babies are not bargaining chips in your politics.

Bring diapers, baby blankets, kids books and toys, your signs and your friends. We can leave the baby items there as a symbol of who they are harming, in hopes that they will get the items to the kids who need it. All while we stand there in protest of this abominable policy, leaving our signs there as a reminder to anyone who enters that they are complicit in this abuse.

Come when you can. Bring who you can. The time is 11 AM - 2 PM, but show up, leave a sign, show your support, whenever you can.
