Here are some actions you can take to protect Civil Rights in the next 3 Hours/3 Days/3 Weeks and 3 Months. We call these steps the Power of 3.
Joint Action Plan
The Civil Rights forum is collaborating with other forums to organize educational events. Please check back later for updates about this.
Transgender Rights for Students
There is a need for more information on the rights of transgendered students, as well as LGBT students. Voters need to educate themselves and others, especially if there is an effort to repeal protections.
Thanks to all who came to a cold winter rally in support of Central American asylum seekers who were tear-gassed by our government. We are a land of immigrants, and we demand that our government and ICE treat asylum seekers humanely. We further demand that our government and ICE follow our own laws and international laws that give asylum seekers the right to apply for asylum.
We plan to follow up this rally with meetings with our Illinois and Iowa Senators and Representatives and local ICE officials.
The rally was organized by Aaron Wagner of Quad Cities Interfaith.
On Tuesday, April 11th, the PACG Civil Rights Forum and St Ambrose University co-hosted “In the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave,” a panel discussion on racial disparities in the criminal justice system including racial profiling and the mass incarceration of people of color.
