  Boston National Day of Action for Immigrant Rights

12/06 3:30 to 4:30 PM

Faneuil Hall Market Pl, Boston

We’re mobilizing across the country to speak out for immigrants in our 
communities, defend immigrant rights and demand urgent action for 
Dreamers and people with Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Since Sept. 5, when President Trump announced the end of DACA, thousands 
of young people have lost their status, and if Congress doesn’t act 
promptly, hundreds of thousands more will be subject to deportation 
starting in March. We’re demanding that Congress pass a clean 
#DREAMActNOW, so young people can stop living in fear and focus on 
school and work.

We’re also mobilizing to defend the 400,000+ people with TPS – including 
more than 12,000 in Massachusetts – who’ve built lives and raised their 
families in the U.S. Already, the Trump administration has said it will 
end TPS for Nicaraguans and Haitians, and decisions on El Salvador and 
Honduras are expected soon. We need to #saveTPS for those who have it, 
and push Congress to pass legislation that enables TPS holders to get 
permanent residency.

And we’re mobilizing to defend ALL immigrants, who’ve faced relentless 
bullying in the past year, and have seen loved ones deported or detained 
– like our friend and SEIU 32BJ member Francisco Rodríguez. We will not 
allow our families to be divided.
Join Dreamers, TPS holders, documented and undocumented immigrants, and 
scores of allies for Boston’s contribution to a National Day of Action. 
We’re coming together to say NO to deportations, NO to racism, NO to 
fear-mongering – and to call for the Safe Communities Act to say loud 
and clear: Immigrants are welcome in Massachusetts!
