Framingham: Teach-Out and Vigil to Stand with our Immigrant Neighbors

Sunday, February 5
2:00 p.m., Park Street Common

A coalition of citizens concerned about recent ICE actions against
immigrants in Framingham will hold a teachout and vigil on Park Street
Common in downtown Framingham on Sunday, February 5, at 2:00 p.m.

For the past week, some people in the downtown area have become aware of
groups of seven or eight ICE officers questioning, and sometimes detaining,
people who look Latino where they work, shop, or live. There is a growing
atmosphere of tension and fear in the community created by this sustained
ICE presence.

Convened by the Metrowest Workers Center and allies, this teachout and
vigil is a first step toward making the larger Framingham community aware
of what is happening in our community and to organize a collective response.

(Park Street Common is located on Concord Street, one block north of the
train tracks.)

Stay tuned for future events.
