Weston, WV, February 2, 2017 (Newswire.com) - On Saturday, February 4, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. EST Americans will take to the streets to show support for refugees and immigrants around the world, especially those individuals and families who have been so callously and irreparably harmed by recent changes in U.S. immigration policy.
Through a collective effort, this action is centered on the following Mission: We march to demonstrate the courage of loving-kindness and to welcome the stranger in need. The dreams of immigrants are the American dream.
There's nothing more important than building solidarity and community in our small towns, where conversations can be had and real change can be made. Our sidewalks are our bridges.
The past election cycle has shown a desperate lack of humane values and genuine leadership: Americans are being divided into camps, left-versus-right, urban-versus-rural, as if these distinctions were not based on generalizations. We seek to prove that the same values which motivated action at airports and in city centers can be found throughout America, from sea to shining sea.
We believe that by showing our support for those who are most vulnerable - and showing our own sincere desires for peace, love, and understanding through peaceful demonstration - we can do as Pope Francis himself challenged all people to do and build bridges rather than walls.
Therefore, around these ideas regular Americans are already organizing in the following cities and towns:
We will help anyone, anywhere who wishes to march peacefully with us and the vulnerable of the world.
