Families Belong Together

Families and community members across the Omaha Metro joined in a call for action to end family separation on Saturday, June 30th at Plaza de la Raza. More than 500 people were in attendance; among those individuals were community leaders and elected officials.

Omaha, Neb., July 1, 2018 — On June 30th, the anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, we gathered with community leaders and organizations at Plaza de la Raza, located on 24th & N Streets, to call on all Nebraskans, our leaders, and our representatives, to say, “No more. Families belong together.” We called on our elected officials to apply pressure on the Administration to reunite families now, end family detention, and to end the Zero-Tolerance policy enforcement measures. Our advocacy will continue until every child has been reunited with family outside of detention with the opportunity to seek representation and enjoy due process in presenting their cases. Take action to help reunite these families and demand an end to family separation by calling and writing to your representatives. Together, we can make our demands heard and reunite children with their parents.
