End Family Detention -- Civil Disobedience in DC

Screen Shot 2018-06-23 at 10.12.37 AM.png

On Thursday, June 28th, Women’s March and partner organizations are organizing a mass civil disobedience in Washington, D.C. We call on women from all communities to descend on our nation’s capital and demand the safety and freedom of immigrant families and children. We will put our bodies on the line to demand an end to this administration’s zero-tolerance policy of automatically criminalizing undocumented immigrants and locking children in prison camps. 

Learn more and register to join us at www.endfamilyseparation.us

*You MUST register in order to receive details about training times, meeting location and any other information pertaining to the action*

Marching is no longer enough, not when this administration is enacting policies that violently detains families, incarcerates children in prison camps and automatically criminalizes their parents. Not when we see photos and videos of children held in child prison camps. Not when we hear their cries for their parents and see their fear and trauma. 

We can not allow these atrocities to go unchallenged. The time is ACT is NOW. 

On June 28, we take escalated action in D.C. demanding this administration #EndFamilyDetention. On Saturday, June 30, we will rise up in cities across the nation to say #FamiliesBelongTogether. These children and families are counting on us. . 

*Direct action training and legal support will be provided to all women participating in nonviolent civil disobedience*

Cuomo Walk the Talk on Climate Change -- in Albany!

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 11.07.44 AM.png

Governor Cuomo says New York is a “leader” on climate change and that it is “gross negligence” not to address climate change. He also says that he has taken “decisive action.” However, the reality is that New York is drastically behind on our renewable energy goals. Only 3% of New York’s electricity comes from wind and solar. Cars, trucks, buildings, and other sources (aside from the electric grid) make up 80% of our emissions — but we're falling behind on cutting back there, too. New York continues to be a conduit, storage, and dumping ground for the fracking industry, harming us and our neighboring states. This not only contradicts our goals but the principles of Environmental Justice, human rights, and stewardship of the Earth.

On April 23rd, join this energetic and family-friendly march and rally outside the Capitol building that will include an opportunity to participate in a civil disobedience action. This will be the largest climate rally ever directed at Cuomo in Albany. Join us in demanding that #CuomoWalkTheTalk and get New York #OffFossilFuels!
