March to Keep Families Together June 23, 4-7pm

The Trump administration has reopened a 1,000-bed Homestead facility that once housed minors who entered the country looking for a better life, reviving a compound at a time when the White House is under fire for a new policy that separates children from parents detained by immigration authorities.

Where: CORNER OF 288th Street and 137th Ave Homestead Florida 33030
Bring: Sunscreen, water, comfortable walking shoes

Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger, and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. Families Belong Together opposes the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.

We are so excited to see the tremendous amount of enthusiasm for our one year anniversary! On January 21, 2018, thousands of women, femmes and allies will come together in Mana Wynwood in Miami Florida, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March and to launch our collective 2018 Women’s March agenda: #PowerToThePolls.

From the Women’s March to the Women’s Convention, we’ve seen how powerful we are when we gather together, share space and lift each other up.

This anniversary event in Miami will be a community event focusing on voter registration, ending voter suppression in Florida and supporting our marginalized communities. We seek to register new voters, engage impacted communities, harness our collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values, and collaborate with our partners to elect more women and progressives candidates to office. It will be a day filled with tremendous speakers, community activists, performers and community vendors.
Please Join Us!
