Cinco de Mayo Rally in Support of Immigrants

Our Cinco de Mayo Rally is the brainchild of Yolanda Brown, coordinator of the Indivisible Morongo Basin Immigrant Issues Team. Yolanda is of Mexican heritage and spent time there growing up, and she wanted to do something to demonstrate support for the people of Mexico as well as the many immigrants to the United States from Mexico at a time when our President is talking about building a border wall. So, she decided to build a different kind of wall–a wall of support for our immigrant brothers and sisters from all over the world, standing shoulder to shoulder in solidarity. Cinco de Mayo seemed like a great opportunity to celebrate our efforts to support people fighting against stronger forces.

A border wall between the US and Mexico would be a manifestation of hatred and fear, as well as a colossal waste of time, treasure, and effort. We at Indivisible Morongo Basin choose to build support, tolerance, and acceptance of all immigrants: No Bans, No Walls, No Raids!

Stand shoulder to shoulder with us on May 5, 2017 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm, at Route 62 and Old Woman Springs Road in Yucca Valley, CA.

 

We did it!

We did it! YOU did it! Every one of you who called, wrote, shared, showed up, rallied, and reached out contributed to this win – and this is a BIG win! We’re under no illusions that TrumpCare is gone for good, but this giant defeat out of the gate has to be demoralizing for the Right and is revealing of the fragility of the Republicans’ foolhardy bargain with Trump. People all over the Basin worked really hard to make this happen, and that work made a difference. Thank you, Indivisibles of the Morongo Basin and throughout the 8th District!

Now, it’s time to get back to work. Our next general meeting is coming up in early April and it will be all about ACTION! Look for details soon.

Finally, a word from the national Indivisible Guide Team:

Friday was just an incredible victory for Americans—and also an incredible victory for you. There is no way TrumpCare would have been defeated before coming to a vote if it hadn’t been for the thousands of office visits, phone calls, and town hall questions from constituents like you and your Indivisible group members. This is your win, and you did it by standing indivisible. Phenomenal, just phenomenal. We hope you and your group are taking the time to celebrate—you deserve to relish this moment and be proud of what you’ve accomplished.
