This Sunday, February 18th, Fernando Garcia, BNHR Executive Director, and Adriana Cadena; Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance Coordinator will run for immigrant rights at the Michelob Ultra Half Marathon in El Paso. The Marathon will start at 7:10 am at the Southwest University Ballpark at the corner of Durango and W. Franklin.
BNHR and RITA believe this Marathon is a great opportunity to demonstrate resistance and resilience of our communities and families targeted by harsh immigration, having as a consequence the separation of Latino and immigrant families
Whether by running, walking, marching, protesting, or calling a representative, Border Network for Human Rights and the families it represents will continue to fight against the anti-Latino, anti-immigrant agenda and against the hate and fear-mongering in Washington, that affects each one of us by dividing our nation.
WHAT: BNHR Director and RITA State Alliance Coordinator to run Half Marathon to denounce Family Separation and Border Wall
BNHR and RITA runners will be wearing orange T-shirts with #NoBorderWall and #StopFamilySeparation hashtags.
WHEN: Sunday, February 18th, at 7:10 am
WHERE: Southwest University Ballpark (Corner of Durango and Franklin)
