Join the Caravan Against Fear - 4/16 and 4/17

We're mobilizing because fear is spreading throughout the US and being used as a tool to promote white supremacy, terrorize communities and break apart families. We believe that defiant protest, coupled with acts of mutual aid, trust, and understanding across communities, are vital to combating fear, repelling Trump's attacks on our freedom and families, and building a lasting civic offensive to defend immigrants and defeat the evil plans of the Trump Administration.
