Fiesta de Familias in Powell
July 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Fiesta de Familias is coming to Powell! 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.
Bring the whole family to Gestalt Coffee Shop and Art Gallery to have some fun, snacks and drinks, good conversations and activities for the kids!
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.”
