Houstonians for Migrant Justice Rally

September 14 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Casa Sunzal Detention Center, 419 Emancipation Ave
Houston, 77003 United States
+ Google Map
Free

We live in a city where asylum seekers are being kept in detention centers, one of which lies just outside Downtown and is housing teenagers indefinitely. These centers are run by the Southwest Key Programs, whose leaders are profiting off of the detainment of children and have yet to share adequate information about the conditions in these centers. We, as Houstonians, are obligated to come together to stand with the migrants in our city and call out maltreatment of migrants when it occurs.

The rally will be held on Saturday September 14, tentatively from 5:30-8:30pm at the Casa Sunzal detention center (419 Emancipation Ave). We will meet at Settegast Park (3000 Garrow St) at 5:30pm and walk for about 5-10 minutes to the detention center.
