Rise up for a march and action to demand freedom for everyone suffering in ICE detention and prisons amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The government continues to send police and ICE to terrorize Black and Brown communities and lock people into cages. Detained and incarcerated people are getting COVID-19 at a higher rate and dying by the hundreds. Meanwhile, elected officials refuse to defund the police and ICE or invest in education, healthcare, housing, and worker protection.
We say enough is enough. It is time to rise up.
Chinga La Migra. Black Lives Matter. Black Immigrant Lives Matter. La migra, la policía, la misma porquería!
No one is free until everyone is free.
DEMAND DIGNITY FOR ALL!
August 14th. 2 PM.
1) We demand that Governor Cuomo use his emergency powers to order the release of all ICE detainees and people incarcerated in NY State to safeguard human life and public health amid COVID-19.
2) We demand that Governor Cuomo establish an immediate emergency relief fund for the undocumented community suffering from loss of jobs and income.
3) We demand that Governor Cuomo #CancelRent during COVID-19, not just defer evictions until later. Many undocumented people are struggling to pay rent due to the effects of this pandemic and will be in danger of losing their housing.
4) We demand that Governor Cuomo #ProtectAllWorkers. Immigrant workers and all workers need proper PPE, hazard pay, and paid sick leave. Immigrant workers are #EssentialNotDisposable.
