Rally Houston Welcomes the Together Juntos Caravan
Against SB4

[Houston, TX] On Thursday April 12, 2018 at 6:30pm at Houston City Hall (901 Bagby Houston, TX 77002) caravanists, community leaders and community members will gather to welcome the Juntos Together caravan to Houston. Spokespeople and caravan participants will be available for comment.

The caravan will address SB4, and provide Know Your Rights and abuse documentation trainings to border communities, and training sessions on how immigrants can continue organizing and fighting to remain safe, especially now that the anti-immigrant law has been fully implemented in the state.

Cities along the caravan include El Paso, Marfa, Presidio, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Laredo, El Cenizo, San Benito, McAllen, San Juan, Brownsville, Corpus Christi and Houston.

The Together Juntos Caravan is convened by the Border Network for Human Rights in collaboration with the Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance, La Union del Pueblo Entero, South Texas Human Rights Center, Movimiento del Valle por los Derechos Humanos, Casa de Proyecto Libertad, Neta, and America’s Voice.

"We welcome the Together Juntos caravan to Houston the Most diverse city in the U.S. We hope that we may conclude the first leg of the caravan here and continue during the summer to the rest of the state to provide valuable know your rights training as well as valuable information or organizing to the rest of the state. We hope that this may spark confidence and hope in our community so we may continue the fight for liberty and justice for all. " -Cesar Espinosa Executive Director FIEL
