As part of our Just Communities/Comunidades Justas campaign Centro Presente invites you to a Public Event to deliver more than a thousand postcards URGING the Patrick administration to not enter Massachusetts into the "Secure Communities" Program.

Where: Grand Staircase, Massachusetts State House

Scheduled Speakers:

Andres Del Castillo- Student Immigrant Movement

Damaris López- Director of Programs, Agencia ALPHA

Fred Small - Senior Minister of First Parish in Cambridge

Gabriel Camacho - Project Voice- Regional Director

Magalis Troncoso- Dominican Development Center

Patricia Montes - Executive Director, Centro Presente

Recognizing that the Secure Communities Program is only one component of a larger problem with the U.S. Government's current "Enforcement Only" response to immigration in this country, the Just Communities/Comunidades Justas Campaign seeks to not only educate and mobilize people against this program, but also to organize our members in order to more effectively engage our elected officials and the public in a discussion about proactive and respectful responses to our broken immigration system.

Supporters: ACLU of Massachusetts, AFSC Project VOICE, Agencia ALPHA, Boston May Day Committee, Boston New Sanctuary Movement, Brazilian Immigrant Center, Brazilian Women's Group, Cambridge United for Justice with Peace, Centro Presente, Chelsea Collaborative, Dominican Development Center, Immigration Task Force of First Parish in Cambridge, Jobs With Justice - MA, Justice at Work, La Comunidad, Matahari - Eye of the Day,  Neighbors United for a Better East Boston (NUBE), The Network/La Red, Proyecto Hondureño, Student Immigrant Movement, The Welcome Project, and United for a Fair Economy.
