Coming Out of the Shadows Rally

As you know, the president and his administration, as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are attacking undocumented immigrants and refugees. We are seeing increased ICE presence creating fear and separating families in other communities.

In order to fight back and show our support for the undocumented community, Momentum Alliance is organizing a Coming Out of The Shadows rally on Monday, February 27th 11:00am at the ICE building in SW Portland.

We are inviting our community and supporters to support this community as they come together to make their collective voice be heard.

What: Coming Out of the Shadows: Undocumented and Unashamed Rally
When: Monday, February 27, 2017

Where: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Building
4310 SW Macadam Ave
Portland, OR 97239

Who: Undocumented people
We invite the broader community to join us not to speak on our behalf, but rather to support us as we speak out for ourselves.

Organized by Momentum Alliance
