Boston Stands With Immigrants
By Haley Lyons, Social Media Fellow
A week ago, I had the opportunity to travel into Boston for the Families Belong Together march. Even before I got into the city, I saw dozens of people board the train with various signs and shirts of dissent. Once we got into Boston, we marched through the streets with chants, cheers, and a police escort.
There is a certain type of camaraderie and closeness that comes with a group that big. It’s humbling to remove ourselves from our first world lives and march through the streets to speak up for those who can’t. Although the world is full of terrible things, at this march we were all on the same side.
Words can’t really do justice to the hilarious and wonderful signs that I saw, so I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
