V-Day & One Billion Rising activists have performed, protested, danced on stages and in the streets around the world in solidarity and in protest; rising and demanding an end to the exploitation of women and girls. Together we have amplified the demands of the most marginalized – working class and minority women on the margins in every part of the globe – who experience the impact and are forced to confront attacks on their welfare, rights, and homes.
In the face of violent, inhumane separation of children from their parents and the mass criminalization of families on the United States border, we call on V-Day and One Billion Rising activists across the United States to RISE IN SOLIDARITY and declare FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER on June 30.
V-Day and One Billion Rising are joining with National Domestic Workers Alliance, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, ACLU, MoveOn, and hundreds of other groups in rallies in Washington, D.C. and around the US to ensure the Trump administration and the GOP know that #FamiliesBelongTogether and the American people are calling to #EndFamilySeparation.
Events are being staged in Washington, D.C. and across the US.*
Right now, Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating migrant children from their families and holding them in cages. The staff at these “shelters” are not allowed to touch distressed toddlers in need of comfort after enduring the trauma of being separated from their parents. This treatment is absolutely barbaric, but we won’t allow it to continue. On June 30, we’re rallying in Washington, D.C., and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents! Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!
We will be creating posters so that you can rally together as V-Day and One Billion Rising, and find one another. Stay tuned for artwork and follow our social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
In the meantime, spread the word and let’s get ready to RISE!
