The outrage over the Trump policy of separating children from parents keeps growing, and now the #FamiliesBelongTogether protest rallies in Kentucky are growing too.
As of late Thursday, there are now FIVE rallies across the Bluegrass state to protest the Trump policy and to say #FamiliesBelongTogether. These are sister rallies to the massive one planned for Washington D.C. on the same day. What are the demands of the rally organizers? Simple:
- Permanently end the separation of kids from their parents.
- End family internment camps.
- End the “zero-humanity” policy that created this crisis.
- And reunify the children with their parents.
And, if you cannot attend one of these Kentucky #FamiliesBelongTogether rallies, there is a petition you can sign as well, that is closing in on 500,000 signatures.
Here are the Kentucky #FamiliesBelongTogether rally locations, including details on how to RSVP. Note that you have to agree to the rules for the rally, which include “committing to participate nonviolently and in accordance with the law, to work to de-escalate confrontations with others, and to obey the orders of authorized event marshals and of law enforcement that ensure the safety of everyone at these events.”
