Vigil at BLM Plaza for Justice
Time & Location
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.
