Close the Camps, Stop the Deportations, Abolish ICE

Don’t let the horror of what’s happening in our country paralyze you. The situation is not new (see the History of Concentration Camps in the US) but because there is heightened awareness, we are in a moment of possible change. Below are things that you can do to help with the humanitarian crisis created by inhumane immigration policies. This is not a time to sit back. Please do at least one of these suggestions.

Show Up
  • Every second and fourth Monday of the month 6-7:30pm, Community Voices for Immigrant Rights, meetings happening online via Zoom. Join us to discuss how to ensure that our efforts are long-term, sustained, and supportive of both local and national orgs like Migrant Justice/Justicia Migrante doing the work on the ground.  There are opportunities for new and seasoned organizers alike to get involved. Breakout working groups will include organizing around educational events, rapid response, national and local street actions, and more.

Call Senator Leahy

Tell him “Not one more dollar for the camps!” 802-863-2525 or 800-624-3193. Leahy voted in favor of the funding bill that was supposed to have restriction on how it could be spent. Those restrictions have already (and not surprisingly) been disregarded. (See article by Noah Lanard.)
