In response to the inhumane policy of separating families crossing the US-Mexico border, demonstrations have been planned across the country on Saturday, June 30th. While the administration has stated that families will no longer be separated, there is still reason to show continued solidarity for families who have been, and still are, separated.
The following information is from the Families Belong Together event page:
"Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating children from their families. But we won't allow it to continue. On June 30, we're rallying in Washington, D.C., and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents! Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!
Come out on the 30th to show support for the families that our government has destroyed, and to call to an end of the inhuman treatment of children. Let's show the world what Midwestern love looks like. Weather is expected to be hot so make sure to dress appropriately, wear sunscreen and bring water to share."
EPIP St. Louis partners with mission-driven organizations to connect philanthropy with existing social movements working to achieve lasting, positive impact in our community. We see this as a clear opportunity for philanthropy to stand with the St. Louis community advocating for the change we wish to see locally and nationally.
We will meet at Kiener Plaza Park, near the playground (Chestnut and Broadway) at 10:15am. If you plan to attend please RSVP here as well as the Families Belong Together event page.
