Families Belong Together Rally
10 am – 1 pm
Todos Santos Plaza, Concord
Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!
This is a peaceful, non-violent, family-friendly gathering to hold signs and protest the separation and detainment of children from their parents at the border. This event will be about visibility and adding one more city to the number of cities who stood up to say “No, we are not okay with this.” We welcome drummers, musicians, artist and poetry to help set the mood of this event. Join together in making our voices heard! Please help lead the way to a brighter future for the children of the world!
What should I bring?
Yourself and five friends! These are family-friendly events. This event is wheelchair accessible.
Please register at:
Also, feel free to bring a homemade sign with a message like:
Keep Families Together
La Families Merecen Estar Unidas
Families Belong Together
Familias Unidas No Divididas
The lead partners of this 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. We believe if we can get a significant portion of the crowd to wear white, it will provide a compelling image for the media coverage and to capture the public’s imagination.
