Immigrant Rights Day of Action

For generations, immigrants have made Oregon a stronger, more vibrant state.

On January 20, the new Trump administration will be sworn in. They’ve promised to start tearing apart hundreds of thousands of immigrant families that call Oregon home from day one.  We cannot sit by while they target members of our communities. Let’s send a message of hope to Oregonians in every corner of our state.  Join us for a National Day of Action prior to Trump’s Inauguration as President.
