Thursday April 26th, 2018 9am-1pm “Join Blue Group in taking over City Hall! It has been over a year since their ordinance passed and we have seen no improvement in their actions to support the Undocumented Community. We are still here. We are still organizing. We want people to come out and show City Council we need more. They have not come out with a statement or done anything to help Maru Mora’s case either. We need to put pressure on them now as ICE takes over our community. It is time we fight for all of us!”
