    May 5, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - 12:00 am
    30 Schuyler Pl

    There are over 300,000 TPS recipients living within the United States many of which are parents, homeowners, teachers, working class individuals, plus more that have created a life here in the United States for almost 20 years. Under the new administration the program for some countries has been cancelled and these beneficiaries are left with fear and uncertainty! That is why we are marching on May 5th here in Morristown to stand in solidarity with our TPS community! Let it be known that we are advocating for a legislative solution! We will not be silenced! Let’s live free together!

    We will have a march starting at Rodney’s office and walk around the green and end back at starting location! Bring the energy all because we will make some noise! Hope to see everyone come out!

  • TPS Action Alert!

    May 7, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Massachusetts State House

    Join Centro Presente in solidarity with people protected under TPS and other undocumented immigrants that have been criminalized.

    When: Monday, May 7th at 11:00 a.m.
    Where: Massachusetts State House, 24 Beacon St, Boston, MA

    Around the first week of May, the current Administration, through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will consider whether to extend or eliminate designations of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Honduras. More than sixty thousand people from Honduras are protected under TPS.

    Honduras is not ready to receive and reintegrate immigrants that are being deported from the US and other countries like México. Every year one hundred thousand Hondurans leave their country due to the level of extreme violence they confront daily. Additionally this year, the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, declared that Honduras is the most poor country in Latin America displacing Haiti.

    According to Amnesty International, the level of insecurity and violence in Honduras has remained high. Widespread impunity continues to undermine public trust in the authorities and the justice system. Protests in the aftermath of the presidential election were brutally repressed by security forces. Honduras remains one of the most dangerous countries in the Americas region for human rights defenders.

  • Migra Watch Training

    May 15, 2018 @ 10:00 pm - 12:00 am
    Friends Quaker Meeting House

    Be a part of a network of volunteers supporting our immigrant neighbors!

    Migra Watch Observers document and monitor ICE officials during raids in real-time. The training will go over:

    1) How to create an effective Migra Watch - documenting ICE activities/media relations/and building people power.

    2) Informing immigrants - what information you should know and how to communicate them quickly and effectively with immigrants.

    3) What are YOUR rights as a Migra Watcher and how to deal with conflicts when confronting ICE.

    You will be given the tools and information to become a part of our volunteer network, and be ready to respond to ICE raid alerts. By monitoring and documenting ICE enforcement we’ll gather evidence to fight an individual’s detention, show solidarity with our neighbors, connect folks with important legal resources, and bear witness to ICE actions.
