June 24 Update: "Families Belong Together" and more

June 30 "Families Belong Together" Event at Kohler Park

A gathering will be held at Kohler Park on Horsham Road on Saturday, June 30, 11AM - 1PM, as part of a larger day of nationwide action. The purpose is to oppose the separation of families at the border, the detention in camps without parents of young children and babies, the proposal of indefinite incarceration of families in military camps as a supposed relief, the criminalization of seeking refuge in America, and the demonization of families and children who arrive at the border seeking help.

You can RSVP for the event on our FB page at https://business.facebook.com/events/215107589107341/ or on MoveOn.org at at https://act.moveon.org/event/families-belong-together/20491/signup/. Please RSVP so we can ensure proper coordination on parking and other event logistics.

Speaking of parking: the parking lot at Kohler park is small and will fill up fast. Please consider parking at Kohler Fields and walking through the walking trails to the event location:

Event will include speakers to be announced soon.

Please Wear White: The lead partners of this action are calling upon participants to wear white—as a striking visual symbol that will also connect attendees in solidarity to each-other and channel historic social justice movements unified by one color of clothing.
