“Get in trouble — good trouble” U.S, Representative John R. Lewis (D-GA) #goodtrouble
Rep. John R. Lewis wrote “Dr. King and others inspired me to get in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble.” We feel similarly inspired to get in #goodtrouble and stand up against the continued assault on immigrants in the US. The US Census has proposed adding a question about citizenship to the once-a-decade nationwide census. Many agree that this question will discourage noncitizens from participating in the census and expose noncitizens to immigration enforcement.
Action 1: Speak up against the citizenship question in the 2020 census: http://cqrcengage.com/censuscounts2020/?0
Peaceful protest is the cornerstone of our fragile democracy. We must use our voices to stand up for people whose voices are being silenced and whose families are being torn apart by the cruel immigration policies of the US administration and ICE.
