Photos: Communities take to the streets to defend DACA

News & Commentary  |  Sep 6, 2017

Yesterday, immigrants and allies in multiple U.S. cities protested the Trump administration's decision to rescind the Deferred Action of Child Arrivals (DACA) program—an inhumane attack on young people, their families, and our communities.

Despite the setback, AFSC and immigrant rights groups across the country say this movement for immigrant rights, family reunification, and social justice is not over. "We will continue our work—in the courts, in our communities, and in the streets—until everyone has access to legal status,” says Kristin Kumpf, AFSC director of Human Migration and Mobility. 

Here are some photos from AFSC staff who helped organize and took part in community resistance across the country.
