#RiseUp May 1, 2017

Join us in Standing with our Immigrant and Refugee Brothers and Sisters

 

Background: May 1st is International Worker’s Day: a historic day to respect the contributions of workers, organize in support of workers’ rights, and demonstrate solidarity with immigrants. This May 1st, immigrant leaders and communities across the country will #RiseUp to demonstrate the power, resilience and strength of immigrants in America. Many groups are organizing local events to lift up the contributions of immigrants in their community.  Learn more at www.riseupmay1.org.

 

Here are three ways that our community can take part in May 1st actions:

 

  1. Be a “Torch Bearer” and show up to May 1st actions and rallies!
  • Join us from 6:30 – 8PM at Penn Square for Lancaster Welcomes: A Celebration of Immigrants and Refugees. Sponsored by many community organizations.
  • You can mobilize people to show up to rallies and events across the country.
  • Bring many members from your community out to the event on May 1st. Provide transportation and encourage carpooling for those who need it in order to be there.
  • Make signs and wear cultural attire as appropriate.

 

  1. Call for Economic Justice through strike solidarity and support!
  • In standing in solidarity with immigrant communities, we encourage you to take the day off and not buy anything or send children to school. We encourage all of the community to do the same.
  • We are asking business owners to shut down for a day and give their employees the day off to participate in events that are happening in the community. This will help demonstrate the economic power of the immigrants’ rights movement. Businesses nationwide will be shutting down to participate in a Day Without Immigrants. If you do this, make sure to post a sign and on social media.

 

 

  1. Let your voice be heard!
  • Share why you are standing in solidarity with immigrant and refugees on May 1st with a value-rooted message during an event, press release, or an opinion editorial or with a sign on your door or through social media!
  • Promote the May 1st actions through social media and share photos, videos during and after the event with hashtags. #RiseUP #LancasterWelcomes
  • Post a sign at your business in support of the movement.
  • Encourage faith leaders from your faith to participate.
