NYC 8/30/17: March to #DefendDACA! Immigrants are Here to Stay

Meet at Columbus Circle (1 Central Park West)
Wednesday, August 30 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Hosted by Make the Road New York, New York Immigration Coalition, DRUM, United We Dream, Women's March, 32BJ SEIU and many others

Trump is considering ending DACA (the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program). This would constitute an act of all-out war against immigrant youth, who are protected from deportation by DACA, and our communities. It would put nearly one million immigrant youth and their families in grave jeopardy. 

On Wednesday, we are standing up to RESIST by marching to save DACA. We need you to stand with us!

The threat to DACA is a reckless and heartless attack rooted in the same white supremacy that we saw on display in Charlottesville, and in Trump’s failure to denounce it. His clear agenda is to terrorize immigrants and our families through mass deportation and to try to make this nation as white as possible. 

It is a horrific and racist strategy, and we will continue to resist it—and organize to protect our young people and families—with every ounce of our strength.[..]
