#WomenDisobey In DC Today, Escalating the Resistance, Over 630 Arrested
Over 2500 women including Eve Ensler, Rosa Clemente, V-Day Programs Director Purva Panday Cullman, Photojournalist Paula Allen, V-Day Board Member Katherine McFate traveled to DC for #WomenDisobey in response to demand an end to the US administration’s zero-tolerance policy that automatically criminalizes undocumented immigrants and tears families apart, and to call on Congress to #AbolishICE. Women from all communities descended on the US capital calling for the safety and freedom of all immigrants. #FamiliesBelongTogether #RiseInSolidarity #UntilTheViolenceStops

RISE in Solidarity #FamiliesBelongTogether Actions TOMORROW – Saturday, 30 June
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 this Saturday, 30 June.
Join the day of action, with more than 700 events in all 50 United States, and an anchor protest in Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C. Tens of thousands of people are expected to participate. The actions are focused on opposing the separation and detention of immigrant families.
#FamiliesBelongTogether — and not in cages. Wear White in solidarity with the protests at the border.
The US Supreme Court rulings of June 26 reflect a racist, xenophobic and misogynistic administration and ruling party. As a global activist movement, we look at the intersection of class, race, imperialism, militarism, patriarchy, poverty, and war, across layers of systematic and societal oppression. Our commitment to RISE is stronger than ever. Our demand is clear.
