What

Join us on Friday, July 12th 2019 at the clock tower in Riverfront Park to protest the horrific conditions that immigrants and refugees are facing and to call for an end to detention camps. We will have speakers attesting to these cruel conditions and how US immigration policies have impacted our community here in Spokane, as well as throughout the nation and abroad. At 9 PM we will be holding a candlelight vigil to remember those we have lost and will continue on to march to the DHS office downtown. (Exact route to come!)

Únete con nosotros el 12 de Julio para protestar las condiciones que los inmigrantes y los refugiados enfrentan en los campamentos de detención. Tendremos personas que hablaran sobre este tema, y cuáles son las acciones que nosotros podemos tomar ahora. A las 9 de la noche tendremos un homenaje y encenderemos velas por los niños que han fallecido en la tierra de los sueños. Después caminaremos a la oficina del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional. Para más información por favor de contactar Fernanda @ 509-655-1753
