Nearly 300 people gathered in downtown Truckee June 30 to protest the current administration’s immigration policy. A variety of people traveled from near and far to celebrate love and protest hate, from people who’ve experienced immigration struggles, to those who hope they never have to, according to Angéle Carroll, the rally’s organizer.
“We spoke to encourage civil communication between all political parties to find a solution together,” Carroll said. The rally, co-hosted by Silke Pfleuger and Janet Atkinson, gave voice to many speakers, all with unique backgrounds and experiences.
