A Day Without Immigrants

In Philadelphia, we are a city proud of our immigrants, a designated sanctuary city, but also a city of individuals and grass-roots groups prepared to protect some of our most vulnerable neighbors. It has become clear the rhetoric of this administration uses fear above logic to target black, brown, muslim and Mexican immigrants, specifically, as innocent scapegoats to the growing failures of imperialist-capitalism. As Philadelphians and good neighbors, we are proud to welcome and home our immigrant family and friends(regardless of their legal status) and honor their contributions to life in our city.

Building on the momentum of the first strike, we are preparing for a second city-wide demonstration (#ADayWithoutImmigrants / #UnDíaSinInmigrantes) in support of immigrant rights on Monday May 1st, 2017. In solidarity with the worker’s strike, the restaurants below have agreed to close their doors on May 1st.
