Cambridge's Mayor and Vice Mayor to Host a Unity Rally Next Week

On Monday Feb. 6 Mayor E. Denise Simmons and Vice Mayor Marc McGovern plan to demonstrate Cambridge’s support of social justice, equality, sanctuary cities along with members of the Cambridge community.

Across the country people have protested at airports, lawyers have volunteered their time to help free detained travelers, and city officials have spoken out and against the Trump administration in favor of their sanctuary statuses.

In an effort to continue the national conversation on immigration and social justice issues, the Cambridge community is encouraged to rally.This is the latest step taken by City Hall officials in regard to recent actions by the Trump administration since their joint statement last week.

Read Cambridge Mayor E. Denise Simmons and City Manager Louis A. DePasquale’s statement from Jan. 25 regarding Cambridge’s sanctuary status below:

"While we do not yet know what impact President Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration will have, as a Sanctuary City, Cambridge will continue to support and promote the safety, health and well-being of all our residents, regardless of immigration status. We encourage every resident – regardless of status – to seek and obtain assistance from the many resources available to the Cambridge Community.

Today, we remain just as committed to all of our residents as we have been since we first became a Sanctuary City 31 years ago."

If you want to show your support for Cambridge, its interfaith community, and its sanctuary status make sure join them on the steps of City Hall or join CCTV via Facebook or for a livestream of the rally at 4:30 p.m.
