SEAFN, 1LoveMovement Action in Tacoma

Tacoma, WA- Organizers, activists, fighters and believers from around the country and across Washington state, will converge in Tacoma to rally against detentions and deportations, and call for the right to return of deported communities and families. This event is co-sponsored and supported by over 40 organizations nationwide. The rally will occur at the infamous Northwest Detention Center where many members of the Cambodian and other immigrant and refugee communities are transferred from many places around the country, as their last stop before deportation and often permanent separation from home and loved ones.
