Who Will Fill Our Fathers Shoes?

Enlace, along with community organizations from Portland and Salem, is gearing up for a vigil outside of the Portland ICE facility to stand in solidarity with deported and detained fathers and the families torn apart by Congress’ and President Obama’s inhumane immigration policies.

Father's Day Vigil 2013 Portland

The vigil will take place on June 17, the day after Father’s Day, from 6 to 7pm at 511 NW Broadway. Bring a pair of men’s shoes and a picture of your father or a father you know who has been deported. We will display them to symbolize the thousands of fathers across the country that are detained and deported each week.

The Portland vigil is part of a nation-wide call for actions focusing on our deported fathers, put out by Detention Watch Network. Check their website for actions in your area.
