Stand up for Immigrants & Refugees in Aurora
- This event has passed.
Description and image from Facebook event page: Join us for a press conference at 4:15pm outside of the Aurora Municipal Building in Aurora to show our support for the immigrant and refugee community and then stay to be part of the Special Study Session called by the City Council to talk about Sanctuary Cities. The council has decided to not allow for public comment, so we will be there in solidarity with our community to send a message to City Council (we ask that you please wear white).
Our message to the City and City Council has to be loud and clear. Our community will not be used for politics, respect our humanity and dignity – instead of holding conversations that leave community input out, the city should be working to ensure everyone that lives or visits Aurora feels welcomed and safe. It is time for us to stand strong and demand a welcoming city for all, join us as we say no to politically motivated sessions in which the community is shut out.
The study session will be from 5pm to 7:30pm, we hope you will join us and stand with the immigrant and refugee community.
