Close The Camps Event

University Park's Michelle Brané has personally witnessed the crisis at the border and will give an update on the situation and what we can do to #closethecamps. Michelle is the Senior Director of the Migrant Rights and Justice program at the Women’s Refugee Commission, and is one of the nation’s foremost experts on US asylum protections and detention policies for migrants.

Hyattsville's Mandy Sheffer launched a one-woman postcard writing popup at Vigilante to flood Congress with handwritten demands to take kids out of cages. She will recreate her popup at the event so that participants -- including kids -- can demand justice and accountability from political leaders.

15% of all mead sales during this event will be donated to the WRC to support their efforts to Close The Camps!
