May Day Action: Immigrants and Workers March | Lafayette Square, Washington, D.C. | Monday, 01. May 2017

We are a nation of immigrants.

We work, we build, we raise families, we vote.


As attacks on immigrants and refugees continue to come under the Trump administration, it's important that we unite together and show the President that we will not be intimidated and we demand respect and fairness.

On May 1st (May Day), let's come together in Washington and show the world we will not be intimidated by the attacks on immigrants in our country and those seeking opportunity in the United States.

  • Great news that Daniel is expected to be released today! But we cannot rest and you know this administration wont. The time is now for us to stand up for what is right. Join us for #MayDayAction on May 1st, 2017.
  • Absolutely tragic! Armed ICE Agents kick down a door and shoot a 52 year old father in front of his family. This is why we cannot have overzealous ICE agents rampaging through our communities without impunity. We need bills like the #MDTRUSTAct to protect our families. Call your legislators and let them know to support immigrant families! #MayDayAction
  • After dropping his son off at school, Jesus Peraza was arrested by ICE. Now his lawyers and the Baltimore City Council are calling out the Trump Administration and for target people without criminal records. "If there's any other reason an ICE agent thinks they might be a threat, they can be arrested. While under Obama, they were instructed to target people who had been convicted of crimes," said Jared Jaskot said. We can't let families like the Perazas be ripped apart. Join us May 1st and stand with immigrant families in demanding justice!
  • Day after an ICE raid in La Cruces the "public schools saw a sixty-per-cent spike in absences compared to the previous week—twenty-one hundred of the district’s twenty-five thousand students missed school. Two thousand students stayed away again the next day." We cannot allow our kids development and education suffer because of this administrations racist tactics. Stand with us and immigrant students across the country on May 1st!
  • Take the pledge to join us on May 1st for #MayDayAction. Let us know why you support a diverse country that welcomes immigrants, refugees, and Muslims.
