Milenio.org invite you to a RALLY TO SAVE DACA

  • Tuesday, September 5, 2017
  • Time: 5:00 p.m.
  • Place: Edith Green - Wendell Wyatt Federal Building located at 1220 SW 3rd Ave, Portland, OR 97204

We will gather at Terry Schrunk Plaza which is across the street of the Federal Building

On July 12, 2017, news broke that John Kelly, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security deflected responsibility for the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) and Temporary Protective Status (TPS) which, combined, protect over one million people from deportation.

In a meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Kelly told Members of Congress that the fate of the DACA and TPS programs were in the hands of white nationalist Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Right wing state politicians have given the Trump Administration until September 5th to end the DACA program.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and officials from nine other states on Thursday urged the Trump administration to end a program that’s allowed hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants to work in the country without fear of being deported.

Milenio.org Food Justice Free Farmers Market
Montavilla City Park

In Portland, Big Grocery dominates our food economy while funding political campaigns of those who hyper - police communities of color and the poor and also drive gentrification. This greed leaves thousands displaced and struggling without access to healthy food or resources to get it. Fight back with us by attending this FREE farmers market. Gardeners are needed to donate fresh produce so that we can make it available to families in need and bring it directly to high density areas and to people impacted by displacement. Please bring homegrown produce between 10-12 to the pavilion at Montevilla park. Growers can also pick a few items from the farm trade table if they donate their best to the Free Farmer's Market. No money allowed. This is how we subvert the Big Grocery Big Money Big Politics game and take action to feed our friends and community.

We will also have music, speakers, poets, and resources for empowerment and community building thoughout the day.

How you can help: Are you a person who is struggling to make it right now in Portland, Oregon? Come and join us for this community event. Bring a bag and shop at the FREE Farmer's Market.

Are you a gardener who is willing to donate fresh vegetables to this project? Please message Susan Anglada Bartley or just come to the park and bring what you can share. People willing to volunteer please contact as well.

This initiative is brought to you by Milenio.org in collaboration with Pueblo Unidos and local activists
