Local Groups to Hold ‘March to Keep Families Together' Event in Homestead

Numerous local organizations will protest against the Trump administration's immigration policy in Homestead on Saturday as part of the nationwide March to Keep Families Together.

The local event will take place in Homestead on Saturday at 4 p.m. beginning at the corner of 288th Street and 137th Avenue.

Organizations involved in the protest include the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, the Florida Immigrant Coalition, Rise Up Florida and Woman's March Florida.

"I have no doubt this kind of outrage and this kind of passion will lead thousands of people who will be at the Homestead facility who will be fighting to make sure their voices are heard and that these children are reunited with their families," Emma Collum, president and founder of Women's March Florida, said.

"What we are seeing is cruelty," Collum added.
