Father’s day ICE protest @ West County Detention Center (ICE Holding facility)
Jun 17 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
I don’t see any better way to celebrate father’s day than by protesting the immoral separation of families. I cannot in good conscience be a good father without teaching my children compassion and to fight for what is right. There was no way I could celebrate while families are being cruelly torn apart. While searching for a way to make this day more meaningful, my friend Megan proposed the idea of the protest at the ICE detention center. Yes, it’s last minute and 100% grassroots, but I hope you will … Continued
