STAND AGAINST RACISM: Indivisible AVL Letter-Writing Drop-In and Monthly Meeting

April 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This year Indivisible AVL is participating in the YWCA’s national Stand Against Racism campaign, and our April meeting is devoted to building awareness and action around this year’s theme, No Hate. No Fear.

We join with the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism in saying: “The violence and trauma enacted upon immigrant communities has become increasingly visible at the forefront of conversations on race, citizenship, and criminalization. In light of heightened anti-immigration efforts and emboldened xenophobia and openly racist behavior and violence in this country, we reassert our support for sanctuary policies and our commitment to standing in solidarity with immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, and communities of color facing the very real threat of racist and xenophobic attacks.”

You can enhance the value of the meeting for yourself by reading this short article in advance. We will have more details soon on our Stand Against Racism project and the parts we will be focusing on at the April  meeting.

Indivisible AVL general meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of the month, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm, and are open to the public. We will gather at 5:30 to catch up on current actions, write our MOCs, and visit with activist friends. The meeting from 6:00 to 7:00 includes actions updates, news, and more in-depth information on a particular issue. All are welcome to attend.
