Action 1: Invite Your Friends to the Rally to End Criminalization, Detention & Deportations on 7/13

As immigrant families in Chicagoland live in fear that ICE raids will tear their families apart, and children and families are being detained in horrendous and unthinkable conditions at the border, we in Illinois are standing with these communities and sending a message of welcome and support.

Indivisible Chicago, Indivisible Oak Park, lIlinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, and PASO - West Suburban Action Project are calling on residents to gather on Saturday, July 13 to protest this administration’s inhumane, ruthless treatment of immigrants. 

We’ve seen the Department of Justice argue in court that the U.S. Government isn’t required to provide toothbrushes or soap to children in its custody. We’ve seen Trump threaten to arrest millions of immigrants in nationwide raids. We’ve seen family separations continue. It’s time to stand up and say ENOUGH. Join us downtown on Saturday, July 13, invite your friends, and make your voice heard.

When: Saturday, July 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Where: Daley Center Plaza (50 W Washington St.)
RSVP and share on Facebook

Come find out what communities are doing and how you can be involved to organize and fight back against unprecedented attacks by the federal government against immigrants and people of color. At a time of increased incarceration, criminalization, enforcement, and dehumanization of people of color, women and LGBTQ communities, learn from community leaders and elected officials about steps taken in Illinois and across the country to not only fight back, but find collective solutions for our communities.

When: Thursday, June 18 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
