Resistance starts today!

Posted January 20, 2017 /

Today is a difficult day for all of us who have been fighting for social justice and a more inclusive society. Our members are terrified of what may happen to their families tomorrow. But we want you to know that CASA is here to fight for the country that we all believe in. We have been holding dozens of “Know Your Rights” workshops; preparing for mass legal screenings; working with allies in the faith community, at nonprofit organizations, and in local and state government; and educating our members on how to prevent and report hate crimes.

Now, we are asking you to join us.

We invite you to join CASA at the Women’s March tomorrow, where we will be rallying with other organizations including unions, women’s groups, and faith leaders as part of the immigrant contingent.

Immigrant Women are #HereToStay
Saturday, January 21, 2017
We will meet at 8:30 a.m.

 Garfield Park
(3rd St SE and G St SE, near the Capitol South metro stop)
Women's March
We have many challenges ahead of us with this new administration, but tomorrow is an opportunity for us to show our strength and remind the administration that we are ready to fight for our rights.

If you cannot attend the march with us (or even if you can), we hope you will consider donating online or attending an upcoming benefit concert for CASA:

Takoma Ensemble
Saturday, January 21st, 7:30 p.m.

Cedar Lane Choir and Chamber Orchestra
Saturday, January 28th, 7:30 p.m.

Every dollar makes a difference, especially now. And we look forward to seeing you marching with us, whether tomorrow or in future. Together, we are stronger.

In solidarity,

Gustavo Torres
Executive Director, CASA
