Stand with Families Seeking Refuge.
Together, we demand a clear and just immigration system that prioritizes family reunification and the demilitarization of our communities on the border and the interior.
The startling heartlessness with which our immigration system treats migrants is a rejection of human dignity. As we watch these families walking everyday closer, we see the same faces as those in our domestic refugee crisis from homeless encampments in Chico to the wildfires throughout Northern California. The haze of tear gas choking migrant children goes hand in hand with the armored cars deployed in Ferguson, Missouri.
We have a moral obligation to uphold our nation’s promise to welcome the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. We cannot succumb to hateful rhetoric and conspiracy theories. Now, more than ever, we must stand for all those with whom we share a common suffering and hope.
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival stands together with the thousands of families who are fleeing violence in Honduras and Central America and seeking refuge in the United States. We are called by a moral mandate to welcome the tired, the weary, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
Forward together, not one step back,
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. But we can’t do this without you: Share our petition now to support the movement, wherever you are, and demand Congress take action.
