Plenty of Activities Coming Up

In Houston, SEIU Justice for Janitors is organizing a "March for Children" this Saturday in support of the children caught up in the humanitarian crisis along the border.  

Would you please pass this along to your contacts and encourage people to attend?

This humanitarian crisis is being used as a divisive tactic for partisan electoral politics.  It should be treated for what it is, a humanitarian children refugee problem and family reunification problem.  Please come to the "March for Children" and provide the right message to the public.  Please bring along donations for the children.

Event: March for Children
Day: Saturday, August 23rd 
Time: 10AM
Location: Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park Post Oak & Hidalgo (1200 Post Oak) Houston
