Kids Standing Up for Kids! Families Belong Together Rally in OaklandAdded to the calendar on Monday Jun 25th, 2018 3:06 PM
When: Saturday, June 30 at 10:30 a.m.
Where: Lakeside Park, near play structure near Staten & Bellevue, Oakland, CA 94610
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!
The executive order that Donald Trump signed is not a solution to the crisis created by his administration; it keeps kids imprisoned indefinitely, and doesn't reunite thousands of separated families. But it does show the administration is reacting to public pressure, so we will continue to increase our pressure for justice at hundreds of events on Saturday,
June 30, to say that families belong together—and free.
Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!
Please join us for this family friendly gathering at Lakeside Park in Oakland elevating the voices of our children in sending the message that they, too, are outraged at what is happening to families at the border. This gathering is an effort to send a message of solidarity and support to the kids at the border, and to compel the government to act.
The event is co-hosted by the Alphabet Rockers, sponsored by the Center for Biological Diversity, Destiny Arts Center, Wayfinding Wisdom, the Junior Center for Art & Science, as well as generous individual donors, and supported by Abundant Beginnings, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom Center, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals, Spotlight:Girls, and Women's March Oakland.
