Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating children from their families. But we won’t allow it to continue. On June 30, there will be rallies around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents! NEA will be standing in solidarity with our partner activists and joining Minneapolis-based organizations this Saturday for a rally and march. We will gather at the Minneapolis Convention Center at 2:00 pm for a short rally followed by a 1.5 mile march and return to the Convention Center for a closing rally.
