    “Gather with us tomorrow to protest the Supreme Court decision to uphold the travel ban under which so many Tucson families stay separated unjustly based on their religion and nationality.

    Gather with us to show the true welcoming nature of our city and to show that we care. Let’s be on the right side of the history and speak up about injustice. Let’s stand up for those whose husbands, wives, children and parents are stuck thousands of miles away because of this blanket ban. Keep families together!

    We want to show love and support to people from Sudan, Somalia, Iran, Syria, Venezuela and North Korea in our city and all over our country.

    5pm at Federal Court House and we welcome speakers from the Muslim and Refugee community!
