I took part in a rally at Todos Santos last Thursday during Music & Market to protest the taking of children from their parents by US border authorities. As we marched through the plaza, there were a lot of thumbs up and supportive comments from families enjoying the music. In this community we know the importance of strong, intact families – and that includes all families. A rally doesn’t solve the problem, but it is an important way to declare our values as a community.
Thanks to Rev Neal Anderson of Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church for organizing.
