July 2nd March for Justice
Hosted by GLAHR
Estimated 15,000-20,000 participated out on 97 degrees hot summer’s heat.
It was an amazing experience and even greater honor to have the opportunity to participate and speak in front of all the brave, audacious group of mothers and fathers and family members.
Some of the best moments of the march for me was while the mass walked around the capitol, there were several occasions where 20-30 people in groups of white joined from a block away. To witness such amount of active people marching for their rights and their dreams reminded me once again that we are NOT alone in this fight.
At one point, a family of allies had a small pit stop of iced water, from a small cooler they brought from home, to hand out to the marchers. It was wonderful because, one, I was dying of thirst after chanting my lungs off, and two, to see people stepping up to make a small difference, even by just the kindness of distributing cold water to support the fight the immigrants are up against.
What an experience it was :) I am just thankful to be part of such movement.
