JCIRA Jefferson County Immigration Rights Advocates
Our mission is to support the rights of immigrants through legal services, standing witness, advocacy and community education.
Trump's threat to round up all undocumented residents this week may be campaign blather but his blather is never innocent. We cannot let this escalation of action against immigrant families be normalized and go unprotested. Whether or not this grandiose threat can be accomplished, it inspires fear among immigrants and we may see at least some increased ICE activity in response to Trump's proclamation.
Please join us for a rally this Saturday, June 22 at 11am on the northwest lawn of the Community Center in uptown Port Townsend, outside the Farmers' Market. If we get a large turnout, we will have a simultaneous rally at the Food Coop Triangle at Kearney and Sims Way.
--Bring your own sign or make a sign at Chris and Art's house, Friday, June 21 at 4:30pm. They live at 1126 Sheridan Ave., at the corner of 12th and Sheridan.
--On Saturday, please don't expand the rally into the Farmers' Market. Demonstrations aren't allowed inside the market and we respect that.
