Florecer Aqui y Alla: International Action/Solidarity Day
July 6 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm PDT
Join us on July 6 for an art action at the Northwest Detention Center, Tacoma. This Solidarity Day will be coordinated with part of the international action Florecer Aqui y Alla, organized by deportees, retournees, and others affected by immigration in Mexico City. We will join them to to call for an end to detention and deportation in Tacoma and beyond, and to call for better conditions including free mobility, living wages, education and opportunity, identity document access, united families, and diverse communities for all. At the event we will be connecting via video with simultaneous actions in Mexico City, New York, Guatemala, etc.
Please bring a seed, grain, or flower that is native to the PNW to use at the event which we’ll use to symbolize nourishment, mobility, and ability to grow and flourish in different places – we’ll have extras on hand too!
