Walk for Justice

Join us as we demand the decriminalization of migration.
We must stand against the atrocities that JEFF SESSIONS is causing to communities of color. We must shut him down, and remove him from such a powerful position. We demand that the local US Attorney’s office stand up on the right side of history.
This is the only way that we can assure that parents will not be separated from their children.

Acompañanos para juntos demandar la des-criminalizacion de los migrantes. Debemos levantar nuestras voces en contra de las atrocidades que JEFF SESSIONS esta causando en las comunidades de color. Tenemos que removerlo de esta posicion de mucho poder. Pedimos que la oficina local de Abogado General se manifieste en el lado correcto de la historia.
Esta es la unica manera que podemos asegurar que las madres y padres no sean separados de sus hijas o hijos.

Meet us at Woodruff Park at 3:00 pm, and lets walk together to the US Attorney’s office.

Nos vemos en el Woodruff Park a las 3:00, y caminemos a la Oficina del Abogado General.

Day of Action – #StandWithMuslims in Atlanta (On-Call)

Last January, Trump and his administration tried to ban Muslims from entering into the United States. Over seven thousand strong, the City of Atlanta and Georgia stood in solidarity with those impacted, and we will do it again if the Supreme Court upholds this racist and Islamophobic ban.

This is an ON-CALL protest as we await the decision expected in mid-to-late June. We will gather at 6 pm in front of the Richard B. Russell Federal Bldg (75 Ted Turner Drive, SW Atlanta, GA 30303) the day the decision comes down.

For more information about the Muslim Ban hearing at the Supreme Court, check out this piece: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/opinion-shahshahani-muslim-ban_us_5ae71bf4e4b055fd7fce13e1

Emergency Protest: Stop the Massacre in Gaza Tuesday May 15 @ 7pm Atlanta

JOIN IN SOLIDARITY

Emergency Protest: Stop the Massacre in Gaza Tuesday May 15 @ 7pm in Atlanta
Centennial Olympic Dr NW & Marietta St NW

Today, Israeli snipers have used live fire to kill at least 41 Palestinian protesters, and injured nearly 2,000 more in Gaza. Palestinians are protesting 70 years of Nakba, for their right to return to their homes and land, and President Trump’s decision to undermine any hope of peace by moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Protesters, journalists, paramedics: no one at #GreatReturnMarch is safe from sniper fire.

It is urgent that we show our solidarity and support for Palestinians in Gaza who are being massacred and maimed by Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightwing government using American taxpayer dollars.

Atlanta joins cities all around the world in expressing outrage against the continued ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. We call on all concerned individuals to take a stand for the Palestinians, still occupied, still violently forced from their land.

Let us raise our voices and show that the people of Atlanta and the US will stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow human beings in Palestine.

We plan to hold an emergency demonstration and march in solidarity with Gaza Tuesday, May 15th, at 7 pm. Look for the Palestinian flags at Centennial Olympic Dr NW & Marietta St NW. Bring friends, family, allies and your banners and voices!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD FOR PEOPLE POWER!
