Want to know some of what's in them?
The start of the day:

Our principal made a big show of welcoming the officers to the building, laughing & greeted them by their names like they were old friends.

We had never seen them before. And the officers never introduced themselves to the group, never told us their names
The whole thing turned out to be facilitated by an LLC run by former law enforcement who perceived a business opportunity in the private sector.

Within weeks of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) participated in a sit-in at the House to demand votes on gun control legislation, saying, "We owe it to the LGBT community & all families harmed by gun violence to keep terror suspects from obtaining guns."
Since he was first elected to Congress in 1998, Sen. Udall has taken a leadership role on a wide array of environmental issues, receiving a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters.

Sen. Udall was one of the original co-sponsors of the Arctic Wilderness Bill, and more recently has worked closely with the Navajo and Pueblo nations in New Mexico to oppose new leasing, drilling and fracking near Chaco Canyon National Park. #DemSenate2020 #DemFuture

BREAKING

Earlier today, 'Mapache', an 18 year old from San Antonio, Texas. Mapache was picked up at the @abolishICEsatx vigil. He's currently detained at the Webb Detention Center.

Mapache is our client. His DACA renewal was pending.

#NotOneMore
Mapache is now locked up. He has a hearing date in October. We don’t know what ICE will do with him until then.

Mapache was first transferred to the Pearsall detention center, then to the Webb Detention Center in Laredo, Texas, where he is now.

#FreeMapache
Mapache recently completed high school. He is a committed community organizer and budding filmmaker.

This is an act of terror by the US government to keep the public from protesting the unethical and immoral treatment of immigrants by ICE and DHS.

I’m glad to see you all at this march, but I wish the context of it didn’t exist. I’m inspired by the young folks here & around the country who’ve mobilized and organized around the issue of gun violence prevention
