      Join one of the 30 actions, vigils, marches, and community events happening this Father's Day week and join the movement to Keep Families Together, Stop Detention and Deportation!

      Go to: www.detentionwatchnetwork.org/campaign for an up-to-date list of actions
       
      As Father's Day approches, the U.S. government continues to systematically tear families and communities apart. Because of mass enforcement, detention and deportation, children across the country will spend Father's Day without their fathers. But all across the nation, communities are standing up to say: Ya Basta! Detention Watch Network has joined forces with the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) for the Father's Day actions this week, and together, we will have over 30 actions in 20 states.
       
      Join an action in your community this Father's Day week to Keep Families Together, Stop Detention and Deportation!
