(Buffalo, NY) Nearly 1000 Western New Yorkers will joined more than 600 actions to take place around the U.S. demanding that children torn from their parents be reunited 
Buffalo, NY — On Saturday, June 30th, Western New Yorkers will gathered at the Federal Court Building (2 Niagara Square, Buffalo 14202) to protest the Trump administration’s policy of forcibly separating children from their parents and demand that separated families immediately be reunified.
The event was organized by members of the Western New York community and organizations including: “Interfaith Peace Network”, “International Institute of Buffalo”, “Justice For Migrant Families”, “NYCLU Western Regional Office”, “Peacejam Buffalo”, “Sister District for Western New York, a NYPAN Chapter”, “Slow Roll”, “StandUp WNY”, “Stronger Together WNY, Corp. – Action Together Network”, “VFP 128”, “WNYCOSH”, “Resistance Voters WNY,” “WNY Peace Center”, “StandUp WNY”, “WNY Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, “.”
The action’s demands are threefold:
• Reunite families now. Permanently end family separation and immediately reunify those that have been separated.
• End family detention. Children and families deserve due process, not indefinite imprisonment. Children do not belong in baby cages and internment-like camps. Family incarceration is not the solution to family separation.
• End ‘Zero Tolerance.’ Reverse the Trump administration’s policy that created this crisis and chaos to begin with. Parents should not be criminally prosecuted for doing what all parents do, which is bring their children to safety. This horrible nightmare for families will only end when Trump permanently stops his 100% prosecution policy.
WHEN:  June 30th at 10 AM
WHERE: 2 Niagara Square March to 250 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo NY 14202
