About the Event

12/15  is the day after state electors ratify Joe Biden as our next president.  To celebrate the electoral work we've done during the 2020 elections,  join NAKASEC VA, CASA in Action, & the Congregation Action Network  in a vigil at the BLM Plaza (in front of the White House) to remind  President-Elect Biden to deliver on his promises to immigrants.  Masks and social distancing will be required.

December is also the season of gift-giving! In the spirit of gift-giving and mutual responsibility, we remind  President-Elect Biden that his stay at the White House is a gift from  the PEOPLE. We will share stories and gifts that symbolize immigrants +  reiterate the importance of keeping his promises of citizenship, relief  and recovery for 11M undocumented folks.

We're pushing the incoming chief executive on policy priorities, which each gift will represent:

  • Immigration: stop deportations and advance relief for immigrants
  • Criminal Legal System Reform: enact immediate measures to stem the flow  of Black and brown young people into our criminal justice system
  • Puerto Rico: dismantle structures of corporate greed that have made recovery impossible for Puerto Rico.
