Raise Your Voice: NYIC’s Mobilization to D.C. (Buffalo)
October 17, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - October 18, 2017 @ 9:30 pm
The news of the lowest number of refugees since 1980 and the third Muslim ban is just the latest attack on immigrants from this administration.
The NYIC is a National Sponsor and has committed mobilizing from across NYS to stand up and say No Ban EVER! On October 18th, the latest iteration of the ban goes into effect and we will be present in DC to raise our voices and stand up to these racist attacks! The program is inclusive of our entire fight for Immigrant Justice and will include speakers that are impacted by Muslim/ Refugee Ban, DACA, and TPS.
A Bus is leaving Syracuse/Buffalo on 10/17 at 5:00pm. Tickets are $15 each which include lodging, food on 10/18, and transportation there / back. We will return to Syracuse/Buffalo on 10/18 very late. This is an important moment for us to organize a strong, loud, mass mobilization that sends a clear message that IMMIGRANTS, REFUGEES, & MUSLIMS ARE WELCOME HERE. We will not be silent while our communities are being targeted. The NYIC has directly impacted members of our community speaking from Western and Central New York on the program and we need to show up in big numbers to support them!
