Still Standing Up For Refugees, Immigrants, Muslims

As a community, we protested outside of the Atlanta Immigration Court March 11 to demonstrate our resistance and demand that the cities and counties we live in stop supporting Trump’s agenda by refusing to use its resources to assist in the deportation of our immigrant communities, by ceasing to detain immigrants for ICE in the Atlanta City Detention Center, and by repealing city ordinances that provide the base for “Broken Windows” policing.

This was a Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ)-sponsored event, with speakers from some of the organizations led by people of color working on immigration rights here in Georgia: Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR); Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR Georgia); Project South; Jewish Voice for Peace. – Lorraine Fontana
