Dear Carol, 

For weeks now, President Trump has used the caravans of migrants making their way through Mexico to stoke fear and fuel his anti-immigrant agenda. He has responded to people escaping violence and poverty by deploying thousands of military troops to the border. And this week, he defended border agents who fired tear gas and pepper spray at a group of migrants that included children.

Now is the time for every one of us to stand with the migrant caravan and all who seek refuge in the U.S. That's why AFSC is organizing "Love Knows No Borders: A moral call for migrant justice" week of action from Dec. 10, International Human Rights Day, to Dec. 18, International Migrants Day. 

On Dec. 10, more than 100 interfaith leaders will lead a nonviolent direct action at the border in San Diego. We invite you and people across the country to join us in solidarity by organizing or joining an action in your community the week of Dec. 10 to 18.

Together, we will call on the U.S. to end the detention and deportation of immigrants, respect the human right to migrate, and end the militarization of the border.

Interested in organizing an event in your community? We have resources for you! 

1. Visit our Love Knows No Borders website to register your local event and watch for other event listings in your area. We'll send you a toolkit for organizers, provide one-on-one support, and list your event online to help you spread the word. 

2. Attend our Dec. 3rd Facebook Live event to learn more: AFSC staff from Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego will have the latest updates on what's happening at the border, and we'll have tips for event organizers and discuss how you can join our week of action.

As the Trump administration continues to treat migrants as a security threat to be met with troops and walls, we are mobilizing for a more humane response – one that recognizes our shared humanity and pledges to meet migrants with the dignity and compassion that we all deserve. 

We hope you will join us for our Loves Knows No Borders: A moral call for migrant justice week of action.  

In solidarity,

Lucy Duncan
Director of Friends Relations

Director, U.S.-Mexico Border Program, San Diego
