Post Office Sidewalk
The Dalles, OR 97058

1) Yes, it is still happening. The problem has not ended with the signing of the Executive Order. There was no plan for reunification. Several thousand children are still separated from their parents.

2) The Focus of our event is on the separation of the children/families at the U.S. border. You do not have to have all the same beliefs as the person standing next to you, other than…. It is wrong to separate children from their parents as they are crossing into the United States and it is wrong to hold children indefinitely. This should never, ever happen again.

3) The lead people for the national action are calling upon participants to wear white—as a striking visual symbol that will also connect attendees in solidarity to each-other and channel historic social justice movements unified by one color of clothing. If a significant portion of the crowd wears white, it will provide a compelling image for the media coverage and to capture the public's imagination.

4) Locally, we are suggesting that people bring pictures of their own children/families to hold during our stand.

Please, get the word out….bring folks along. Send this message by email and post the info on Face Book. There are 500 cities rallying…. The Dalles is one of those. To help our numbers, if you are planning to attend…please sign up at:
