With the Trump Administration’s new “zero tolerance policy” toward border crossings that is leading to the separation of children from their families, a broad coalition of organizations have called for a day of action on June 30th. Included in the coalition are a number of prominent “Resistance Groups” incuding MoveOn, the Women’s March, and the ACLU, along with other more issue-focused groups like Greenpeace, NARAL, and the National Domestic Workers Alliance.
This day-of-action is likely to be the biggest mobilization since the March for Our Lives took place in March. In contrast to the 6 weeks it took to organize the March for Our Lives, however, the organizers have only 12 days before the #FamiliesBelongTogether event.
I will be fielding a team of researchers to collect data at the event by the White House, which is likely to be the biggest event. Already, sister marches have been called for over 132 cities.
