On May 1st, immigrant familes, low-wage workers and allies all over the country will rise up in resistance to demonstrate the strength of our communities. El CENTRO, along with dozens of organizations around the country make a call for day with no work, no school, and no purchases. Join we #RiseUP to show the power and resilience of our communities. May 1st will be a day of unity and solidarity. People of good will from all movements are joining and will be welcomed to help carry the torch. We will display the power and muscle of progressive ally organizations, churches, community based organizations, labor unions, environmental and LGBTQ organizations and other allies committed to resisting and defeating Trump and other anti-immigrant politicians and willing to fight to force the Trump administration to end or scale back attacks on immigrant families.
We will come together as a community at a peaceful rally to defend our immigrants’/refugees’ communities and workers’ justice. We will have speakers, danzantes, live music, activities for the entire family, and more. Picnic Style. WEAR WHITE!
