On January 20th, a march organized by Immigrant Movement for Justice was held. Everyone met at the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center and marched to the Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center. We started and ended the march with two dance groups: Kalpulli Yaocenoxtli and Kalpulli Huitzillin They energized, inspired and spoke of the need for systemic reform of criminal justice system. Speakers included a doctor of Haitian descent, a couple of Dreamers, a representative from Black Lives Matter, a member of Jewish Voice for Peace and several others. The focus was on the need for systemic change to support lasting change, as the needs of immigrant communities are not just a result of the current administration, but have a long history of injustice and inequity. This administration must be held accountable for the further deterioration of these rights.
