Detention Center Protest

 

Join us on Thursday August 22nd as we engage in direct action and civil disobedience outside the Varick Detention Center located at 201 Varick St in Manhattan to protest the House of Representatives’ failure to act on real immigration reform.

Our communities will not stand for further delay on reform that protects the dignity of all and keeps families together.  We will continue to highlight the inhumanity of the detention and deportation of our immigrant families and communities until just and humane immigration reform is passed.

Will you stand with us to tell Congress that the time is now to reform our broken system? 

What do we want?  Citizenship for all!  An end to the massive deportation and detention regime!  Equal rights and a fair day in court for every member of our community!

For those interested in engaging in civil disobedience on August 22, there will be a training on Monday, August 19th at 2 p.m. at St. Peter’s Church located at 619 Lexington Avenue at 54th Street, New York, NY 10022.  Please RSVP to rrchanges@gmail.com.
