Tentative March plan/route:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is terrorizing immigrants at the border and in our communities. But we have the power to fight back—by targeting anyone who does business with and helps ICE.
Science for the People is calling for a #WeWontBeComplicit picket and march targeting Microsoft's NYC offices, the Salesforce tower, and the Amazon Store on 34th Street. All three of these companies have substantial contracts with ICE and the Border Patrol that enable these agencies to tear migrant families apart.
As part of Movimiento Cosecha's National Day of Action to #AbolishICE, and in solidarity with the tech workers at Microsoft and Amazon calling on these companies to cancel their contracts with ICE, we will stand up against the Trump regime's horrific border policies. We will continue to demand justice in the case of Pablo Villavicencio, who was kidnapped by ICE on June 1st at Fort Hamilton Military Base in Brooklyn, NY while delivering pizza.

From Movimiento Cosecha:
In the last month, hundreds of thousands of people have risen up in outrage at the stories of mothers and fathers separated from their children, internment camps for immigrant families fleeing violence and seeking asylum. We have seen the cruelty of ICE, the institution that carries out unjust anti-immigrant policies and persecutes parents for daring to dream of giving their children a better life.
We cannot wait for the White House and Congress to act. On July 31, we are taking action to #AbolishICE by targeting the institutions ICE relies on to function day in and day out.
**Mayors, local police departments, and county commissioners allow ICE to use local jails to detain families.
**Private tech companies develop their surveillance technology.
**Airlines that deport people away from their families.
**Schools, DMVs and hospitals that share confidential records with ICE to persecute undocumented people.
It is our moral duty to refuse to be complicit with ICE’s deportation machine at every level and demand that the institutions we are part of do the same! #WeWontBeComplicit
