UPDATED 6/28/18 - After reviewing Trump's Executive Order, it is clear that he is not listening to us. His policy allows Border Patrol to hold families in detention indefinitely. We must not be distracted by Trump's red herring executive orders. We MARCH ON!
Join your local members of the resistance along with MoveOn, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and United We Dream, in our national movement to:
1) reunify ALL families ripped apart due to the inhumane separation policies enforced at the U.S. continental border and release the families,
2) end the new Trump-led exclusions of gang-violence victims, domestic violence victims, and LGBTQ persons from seeking asylum in the U.S.
Trump's federal agents took children, from infants to teens, away from their immigrant parents — tearing apart families and meting out physical and psychological abuse at our border, every day. There are thousands of children living in detention centers and tent cities now. And THERE IS NO REUNIFICATION PLAN. Children are bound to be lost in our fractured foster care system.
Now is the time! We're gathering nationwide to demand that America reunify families and keep asylum open to those who need it!
WHEN: SATURDAY, JUNE 30
9:00am Gather at the Hawaii State Capitol
9:45am Welcome remarks
10:00am March to the Federal Building
11:15am Rally upon return at the State Capitol

I'm a mother, a foster mother, and like many others in Hawai‘i, I am a descendant of a Japanese-American internment camp victim. My Great-grandfather Yamaguchi was a Maui school teacher who was separated from his family and sent to an internment camp in California because he was an educator and Japanese.
