|Immigrants and Allies in 2017: Feeling Safe in a New Era.
We must be ever vigilant in ensuring that there is no place for intolerance or anti-immigrant bias in our neighborhoods. There are members of our community who do not feel safe. That is unacceptable. Please join us for an important evening with a distinguished panel who will
respond to concerns about possible changes in policy and laws that may affect families in our community.
You will walk away knowing what it means to be an ally and concrete ways to speak up and make a difference!
Sponsored by the Palo Alto Human Relations Commission, LWVPA, and others.

The closest march is in San Jose, 10 am - 3 pm.
|San Jose City Hall

This is an opportunity for the League to make our voice heard on our priorities. We march for voting rights. We march to reform money in politics. We march for health care. We march for the environment. These are our core issues and we want to ensure they are front and center.
This historic day will bring Americans together in the spirit of democracy. After all, the League was founded because women and men marched. And this month, the League will march again.
We are Making Democracy Work!
