Join IEB's stop on the Border to Border with Love relay to create a pro-immigrant, anti-hate collage
Date and Time: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 @ 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Location: IFPTE Local 21, 1440 Broadway Suite 610, Oakland, 94612
Congress must hear us loud and clear telling them to #DefundHate. Join us on September 10th at 1440 Broadway, Suite 610, Oakland, CA at 5:30PM to communicate our demand to Congress to take true action to stop funding hate and cruelty by reducing ICE & CBP budget to 2016 levels; eliminating their ability to steal funds from other agencies, and voting no on any Appropriations Bill or Continuing Resolution that doesn’t include these two items.
We'll be gathering to create a collage of pro-immigrant, anti-hate messages to combine and send to the final Border to Border with Love event in San Diego, where Native, Indivisible and local leaders will gather for a rally to #DefundHate. We will also write postcards and letters to the editor and learn about other ways we can support this cause.
Also, please donate to our partners at Centro Legal de La Raza (https://www.centrolegal.org) to support legal aid to immigrants and assistance to families of detained immigrants.
If you're unable to make this event, you can still submit material to the collage! We have several options for getting the creative messages to us.
