Art Build for ICE Out of the Courts Action

  • Verso Books 20 Jay Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)

DSA is holding a Speak Out against courthouse arrests on Oct 11 at 5PM in Foley Square where we will take a stand against courthouse arrests, and the profit-motivated prison industrial complex that drives this racist and xenophobic system. At 4PM, NYC Democratic Socialists of America will join in coalition to deliver thousands of petitions to 25 Beaver St, the office of Janet DiFiore, Chief Judge of New York.

To prepare for this action, we will need a LOT OF HELP to make visuals that will make this action compelling. We'll be focusing on drawing attention to the ties between deportation and the prison industrial complex, the sharp rise of courthouse arrests since Trump took office, and the number of DiFiore's constituents that have signed this petition (I think close to 4,000 now!). 

Please join us and feel free to reach out to immigrant.justice@socialists.nyc with any questions!
