Thread on some preliminary findings from the #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch yesterday in DC 🧵
Like other marches in #TheResistance, the #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch turned a crowd that predominantly female (70%) and highly educated (84% held a BA or higher).
Only the #WomensMarch2017 was more educated

Tulsi Gabbard is so progressive she skipped #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch. Is it because she knew Hawaii progressives might start asking her hard questions, like why won't she debate @SherryForHawaii? Or if she wants to #AbolishICE?
Tulsi Gabbard is so progressive even her buddies at Fox News are criticizing her for refusing to debate her progressive challenger @SherryForHawaii! 🤣…
Tulsi Gabbard is so progressive she -- unlike @SherryForHawaii -- skipped #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch but also gave herself credit for going anyway by posting photos of a few of her supporters at the march with her stickers on their signs. 😄

As uplifting as our day of #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch events is - we have to talk about #MeTooICE and the sexual degradation of prisoners. Trump is traumatizing a generation of people. We must dedicate ourselves to moments of re-unification and lifetimes of healing. #MeToo
We don’t fully know the answer to #WHEREARETHEGIRLS? Having worked in sexual assault prosecution and prevention, I know #metoo incidents are astronomical among female prisoners & girls in state custody. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch is a cry for HEALING.
The assaults, pregnancies, and degradations must be a part of this conversation. STOP government from separating families, imprisoning children, or sanctioning assault & trauma. We must include not just FREEDOM but HEALING in our demands. #FamiliesBelongTogether #MeToo #MeTooICE

Obligations kept me south today...#Portland #Maine #KeepFamiliesTogetherMarch

Shoes on church steps.

Crowds starting to form.
Photos don't do this justice. You can hear the crowd blocks away. #Portland #Maine



Photos don't do this justice either. A bunch of folks still in the park. #Lewiston #Auburn #Maine

Kids in tow so we had to take refuge from the heat at #HouseOfBacon.

We must all take time to understand the Central American refugee crisis as a climate issue connected to US military and economic policy.

350 Justice & Equity Manager @natycar74 spells out those links.… #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch #FamiliesBelongTogether

The US produces 5312 metric tons of carbon.

Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador & Honduras only produce 30.7 metric tons - less than 1% of the U.S.

The Dry Corridor & refugee crisis are driven by the lack of US climate policy #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch…

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS…

Release: Because for-profit or military imprisonment is unnecessary and illegal
Represent: Because represented children and families have a 96% court appearance rate and are 400% more likely to win their claims for relief
Reunify: Because we can do it faster than the government
@RAICESTEXAS @MigrantFreedom @TXCivilRights @ACLU @ProPublica @ThinkLawLab @abogadatejana @AlOtroLado_Org @aldea_pjc @immcouncil Are ready, willing, and able to put these families back together much more efficiently than the government ever could.
