Invitation to People Called to Action March & Rally – Sat., June 25 – lining up at 10 am

The Latino and Latina Roundtable has endorsed the “People Called to Action March & Rally” (see attached flyer) this Saturday beginning with a lining up for the march at 10 AM in front of the Pomona Library (505 S. Garey Ave.).  This March & Rally, led by the Pomona Valley Branch NAACP is part of national actions of the Poor People’s Campaign against structural and systemic injustices (including injustices on issues of housing, immigration, poverty, racism, health care, women and infant mortality, special education, voter suppression, law enforcement, inflation, and the economy).  The LRT will have a banner and core of our members supporting and we ask that you join us.
For those who can join us the day before, we will also meet at the Solidarity Center (1460 E. Holt Ave.) on Friday, June 24 at 2:30 pm to make posters and signs.

LRT to March in support of Immigrant children as part of Pomona Poor People March and Rally this Sat. June 23

The Latino and Latina Roundtable invites our members and friends to
be part of a contingent in the Poor People’s Campaign March and  Rally
this Saturday, June 23 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Civic Center of
Pomona (Mission and Garey) alongside the NAACP and other organizations.
As part of the theme “Pursuing Liberty in the Face of Injustice,”  The
Latino and Latina Roundtable members will be particularly marching in
support of human rights for the immigrant children who have been
separated from their families and who, this administration has vowed
to continue to detain although public pressure has forced a change in
policy to somehow “keep families together” as part of still
implementing a “zero tolerance” policy.    LRT members will be making
posters in support of these children and families (to carry in the march)
this Friday, June 22 at the Solidarity Center (at the Village (1444
E. Holt Ave. in Pomona — Entrance #3 – Classroom 6)
from 12 noon until 2 PM if you are interested in
helping.  ”  The event includes booths, free food and drinks, – —
 a March around 4 blocks — and short speeches focusing
on important issues being faced by our diverse communities.
