Fiesta De Familias, Cody
July 12, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Fiesta de Familias is coming to Cody! Wyoming Rising is happy to co-host this event celebrating our community and the families that live in it.
In light of the actions of ICE, the Justice Department, and the proposed immigration prison in Uinta County, #WyoSayNo is partnering with local organizations across the state to build community and solidarity and talk about how we can take action here in Wyoming to stop family separations not just at the border, but everywhere. Join us to have some fun, good conversations, and some snacks!
Anybody like Sangria?? and we’ll have finger food. If you want, bring a potluck dish and whatever else you would like to drink (NOT REQUIRED).
RSVP through this link for the address, and so that we can get a sense of numbers:: RSVP Link to #WyoSayNo
If you have other things going on this Thurs but still want to show solidarity against immigration detention, you can swing by just to add your painted hand-print to the canvas “art” piece that we will be creating (see below). You can also attend the Powell event on Wednesday, July 11 instead.
Spread the word!
“To go along with a social media campaign, #WyoSayNo is providing a community art project [for each community Fiesta]. This will be a canvas banner that reads “(town name) say NO!”. Using paint, members of the community (adults and children) will put hand prints on to show support. The hand prints are meant to show that people in Wyoming are coming together hand in hand against the possible prison in Uinta County.
We understand fear of losing a family member is a strong thing, and we understand why people are reluctant or unable to add their name to a petition or letter of support. When presenting the banner let people know this is a way they can raise their hand in opposition to the prison and to show support for the people on the front lines of this fight.”
