No Hate, No Fear, Immigrants Are Welcome Here!

Join 32BJ SEIU, the Irish International Immigrant Center, and other community allies for a solidarity rally Thursday, July 6th at the Irish Famine Memorial (corner of Washington St & School St, Downtown Boston).

We raise our voices against the Trump administration’s destructive agenda to separate immigrant families and discriminate against our friends and neighbors.

We reject blanket anti-immigrant legislation like the two bills passed by the House of Representatives this week that villainize immigrants, penalize those who are fleeing persecution to seek asylum, and compromise public safety. We are #HereToStay!

We know that Trump’s “Muslim ban” won’t make us safer but instead tarnish our nation’s reputation as a beacon of freedom. #NoBanNoWall
