Presentation at MoveOn.org's "Families Belong Together" Rally - Indianapolis (6-30-2018)

On June 30th, 2018 I had the distinct honor to be a presenter at the "Families Belong Together Rally" in downtown Indianapolis. My message was clear, "please don't separate us from our family, friends, and community! Please don't send us into the dangers of El Salvador! And, please get involved to help stop the unjust separations and deportations!

We MUST RISE UP FOR CHANGE!!!!

  1. VOTE
  2. Press Congress to remove Immigration from the unilateral control of the Department of Justice under the villainous xenophobic control of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and realign within the bipartisan oversight of  the executive branch
  3. HALT ALL DEPORTATIONS until a human-centered solution can be realized
  4. Prioritize the Reunification of Families
  5. Abolish ICE


I beg you to please call you Senators / Congressmen & women today!
