Thawing ICE: Mindful Walk for Immigrant Justice
Every second Thursday, noon - 1:00 pm
Portland I.C.E. bulding, 4310 SW Macadam Ave.
As many of you know, protesters are currently occupying the Portland ICE facility in solidarity with immigrants and migrants detained by ICE. In the spirit of this occupation, we affirm that we will not tolerate the criminalization of immigrants or those who profit from their indefinite detention; we will not tolerate the separation of families either at the border or in our own city. We affirm that it is time to abolish ICE, and that we will keep lively, disruptive vigil until it is.
All people concerned about the criminalization of immigration are invited to join in a monthly silent walk of compassion and solidarity. Learn more about the event & rsvp on Facebook.
