ACTION: Plan to Attend Saturday Rallies in Frederick and Westminster.

WESTMINSTER: Saturday 1pm to 2pm

Resist Rally: This is an ongoing weekly rally to resist the proposed policies of Trump administration that are an affront to our sense of values and morality. 

Join us Saturday from 1pm to 2pm in front of the Westminster Library. Invite your friends and family. Bring your signs. Let's get 100 people out this Saturday.

Carroll needs to hear from concerned citizens.

FREDERICK RALLY: Saturday 3pm to 5pm

Rally for Immigrants Rights:
Join Safe Haven & SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) Frederick for a rally to:

1) Demonstrate support for the protection of the human rights of immigrants in our community; and
2) Protest Frederick County's exceptional cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

We'll gather and demonstrate on the sidewalks at the intersection of Market and Patrick Streets. We'll then march along Carroll Creek and convene for a rally and speakers at the Amphitheater.

Bring signs, your friends, and your voice!

Plans are being made to ensure accessibility for all, including those from the Deaf and Spanish-speaking communities.
