We ask those who are able to pay full price or more for our programs to do. This helps keep our programs financially accessible to all, regardless of income. Not sure if you should pay less, more, or nothing? View our Sliding Scale document to find an amount that feels appropriate to you.

ICE Protest: Close the Camps/End Deportation
October 20, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
Route & Logistic details TBA.
From the day he took office, Donald Trump escalated a failed and cruel immigration policy into an all-out war against immigrants, banning Muslims, slamming the door on refugees, tearing children from their parents’ arms.
Each new affront has been met with outrage and protest, but even when he has retreated, Trump has sought new lines of attack: concentration camps, workplace raids, new bars to green cards and citizenship.
Meanwhile many immigrants are being terrorized in their own communities, afraid to answer the door, take children to school, or go to work. These communities need to see and feel the solidarity of the majority that stands with them.
We call on all those who oppose the raids, family separation, deportations and incarceration to unite against this reign of racist persecution.
It is time to say, “¡Basta Ya!” Enough is enough!
On Sunday, October 20th, let us act together against those who would give us a future of division and white supremacist hate. Let us unite together people of faith, unions, anti-racist fighters, climate activists, youth activists and other progressives to target Trump’s anti-immigrant, deportation machinery.
Let us act in the knowledge that no human being is illegal anywhere, not least in a country formed through violent colonialism.
Most of all let us open our arms to immigrants in our country or at our borders with a greeting of friendship.
