Senator Andy Dinniman addresses the crowd

State Senator Andy Dinniman (D-19) addressed the crowd at the June 30 “Keep Families Together” rally. He started by noting that he has spoken many times on the court House steps, but never thought he’d be there protesting the separation of families by the US government. Other notes:

“It’s cruel, it’s immoral, it’s wrong, and we’ll make sure that it stops.”

“We are here today to reclaim the soul of America.”
