Join the Japanese American community in nonviolet protest of the incarceration of immigrant children and families at the Dilley mass incarceration site and families seperated by the Muslim Travel Ban.

We need volunteers to fold 10,000 origami cranes strung together in chains to be hung on the fences around the Dilley site as our protest.  We want children and families seperated and incarcerated in detention sites or seperated byu the Muslim Travel Ban to know that Japanese Americans are fighting for them.  Mass detentions and the Muslim Travel Ban must end!  We stand in solidarity.

Please send your cranes (on strings, if possible) to Grassroots Leadership in Texas by March 23, 2019. Bob Libal, the Executive Director, Grassroots Leadership, a nonprofit social justice organization whose mission is to work for a more just society where prison profiteering, mass incarceration, deportation, and criminalization are things of the past. Bob and his staff and Sister LaRock from the Sisters of Charity along with One World Taiko from Denver will be joining us at the South Texas Detention Center on Saturday, March 30th. On Sunday, some of us will go with the Sisters of Charity at the bus station in San Antonio to offer assistance and backpacks to newly released families.

Please send your cranes by March 23rd to:
