Please join us for a rally to discuss inhumane policies on immigration and the importance of keeping families together. Despite Trump signing an executive order to end the separation of families at the border, many questions remain, “What will to happen to the families that have had to experience this terrible ordeal? Will they be reunited? Will they be granted the asylum they were seeking? Deported? Imprisoned indefinitely?”
Our speakers include Rod Miller, a Wyoming native and republican candidate for Congress; Travis Helm, a local immigration lawyer and democratic candidate for the US House of Representatives; Narnia Nunez, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Wyoming with a background in the psychological effects of childhood abuse and neglect; Jacqueline Grimes, a school psychologist with a focus on multi-cultural and linguistically diverse populations and designing culturally aware educational systems of support for minority students (e.g., children with immigrant and refugee status); and Julio Brionez, a soon to be counseling psychologist at the University of Wyoming with a background in preventing suicide by developing personal identity and adverse childhood events linked to family separation.
All are welcome to participate in the rally, which will be held from 12:00-3:00 at the 1st Street Plaza in downtown Laramie, Wyoming (106 Grand Avenue). If you or someone you know are interested in speaking at or contributing to this event, please contact one of the hosts.
