Let Our People Go

  • Elizabeth Caruthers Park 3508 Southwest Moody Avenue Portland, OR, 97239 United States (map)

We've written. We've waited. We've called. We've cried, prayed, sung, and marched. We've disrupted ICE's operations and even put our bodies on the line in faithful acts of civil disobedience. 

But still, our people are detained. Over 100 men who came to this country seeking refuge are still locked behind bars in Sheridan. Immigrants are detained in NORCOR. And parents, friends, children, kin are in cages throughout our country.

We are reminded that it took ten radical disruptions, ten pleas from Moses until Pharaoh's heart was softened and the people were let go. 

So join us on Tuesday once again, as we say Let Our People Go.

Bring your friends and community members. Bring your signs that say, #LetOurPeopleGo. Bring your cameras, your sunscreen, and your water bottles.

And let's keep the calls coming. Use the talking points in the link below and mobilize your community to call ICE Elizabeth Godfrey and our congressional delegation with stories of those detained at Sheridan and our demand to “Let Our People Go!"
