Families Belong Together Rally - ATX
posted June 27, 2018 10:39 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat June 30 at 12:00 PM, Texas State Capitol
1100 Congress Ave, Austin, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
On June 30, we’ll join with people rallying in Washington, D.C. and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to end this cruel and inhumane zero tolerance policy, to stop dehumanizing immigrants and migrants, and to end family​ detention and separation. (Cribbed from official event description)
The event will last from Noon - 3:00 with speakers throughout.

It seems like the primary event organizer is Children's Defense Fund of Texas, but looks as though many groups will be represented. My wife and I will be heading there from South Austin ~ half an hour early to make sure we can park, walk, and get the lay of the land before the event officially begins.

Sign Ups are still available for volunteers, if you're so inclined.

I love that this is in MeFiIRL and I'd be there with bells on but am going to be out of town. Good luck! I'm with you all in spirit!

I have just gotten an EEG strapped to my head and will do my damnedest to be there, but I'm not supposed to get it wet so we'll see there.

I'll make a sign tonight regardless.

It's a great showing out here! If you're on the fence about coming- just come.
