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.

  • Reunite families now. Permanently end family separation and immediately reunify those that have been separated.
  • End family detention. Children and families deserve due process, not indefinite imprisonment. Children do not belong in baby cages and internment-like camps. Family incarceration is not the solution to family separation.
  • End ‘Zero Tolerance.’ Reverse the Trump administration’s policy that created this crisis and chaos to begin with. Parents should not be criminally prosecuted for doing what all parents do, which is bring their children to safety. This horrible nightmare for families will only end when Trump permanently stops his 100% prosecution policy.

#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.
