Portland, Paynesville and New Haven have taken exemplary measures to respond to the raids on their homes and families. From activating crisis teams to open up churches and alert schools, providing emergency food and shelter, to organizing press conferences and local meetings to inform the community and the country of their stuggle and their rights.
Last night Portland area families held a gathering in a local church to address the fears of the community. New Haven has already organized a march, and in Ohio families will be coming together to march this Sunday.
JUNE 19 — WE MARCH IN DC
for the RIGHTS OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
Where: meeting at Metropolitan AME Church for procession and action at the White House
Why: Because when worker’s don’t have rights, our families can’t survive
When parents are disappeared, our children suffer
When students can’t get an education, our families are damaged
President Bush is trampling on the rights of children and families and we won’t take it any more!!!!
