We just received this action alert from CAUSA in Oregon:
Last Thursday, 20-30 white teenagers beat and threw stones at two Latino workers in the small town of Mulino. CAUSA is appalled and outraged at this racist, violent hate crime. Anti-immigrant sentiment has fueled countless other unreported violent acts against immigrant workers and families. Now is the time for us say no to hate and to fight for dignity and respect for all.
We urge you to join human dignity groups, the immigrant community, and allies in a Vigil Against Hate Crimes:
When: Sunday, June 3rd, at 6:00 pm
Where: Carnegie Center Park, 7th and Jefferson, in Oregon City.
In case of rain, the vigil will move across the street to Atkinson Memorial Church.
This vigil is sponsored, so far, by Rural Organizing Project, Atkinson Memorial Church, Portland Immigrant Rights Coalition, and the Coalition Against Hate Crimes.
