We will be gathering to prepare for the action at 10:30 am at the corner of the Capitol grounds at 1st St. NE and Constitution Avenue, right across the street from the Russell building Constitution Avenue entrance. It is especially important for parents and children who are participating to join us at 10:30am.
Please text/call Omar (202-699-0694), or Alexa (202-845-5898) with any questions.
More than 50 children supported by the community and clergy will process into the Russell Senate Office Building Rotunda and lie down on Mylar blankets. The children will symbolically represent the thousands of children separated from families on the border, sleeping on floors and held in cages (see image above from McAllen Detention Center).
Clergy and other’s attending will pray with the children and call for action in Congress to reunite families, stop separations and criminalization, and defund the Department of Homeland Security. Simultaneously, with the event in the rotunda, clergy, leaders and children will deliver letters, mylar blankets, and cages to congressional leadership.
All allies are welcome to join in solidarity and to help sponsor the event.
