Join our Human Billboard in support of the caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the US border. They've made it to Mexico City and they're headed our way! Donald Trump and his white nationalist cronies are overturning years of established law granting amnesty to asylum seekers fleeing violence and persecution. They are mobilizing up to 15,000 troops to repel this caravan and other migrants at the border. Let's greet our neighbors from the south with open arms and solidarity! There will be a kid friendly space with materials for kids to make signs.
