A meeting is scheduled in Memphis Monday, June 25th, to address the separation of immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexican border by the Trump admistration.

The meeting is planned for 5:30 p.m. at Shady Grove Presbyterian Church. On the event’s Facebook page, more than 1,000 individuals have shown interest.

Indivisible Memphis, the event's organizers, are seeking to take action in support of asylum-seekers and to keep families together.


Additionally, a demonstration hosted by Latino Memphis and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, is slated to take place here on Saturday, June 30th, as a part of a national day of action, responding to President Donald Trump’s policy of separating children from their parents. The rally will take place at 10 a.m. at Gaisman Park.
