TRU coordinated with Students Against Private Police (SAPP), the International Socialist Organization Baltimore, and the Party for Socialism and Liberation to hold a demonstration in September 21 in protest of Hopkins’s continuing contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The demonstration included a playdate, singing, and a march to Garland Hall where we delivered a petition of over 1,900 signatures. A speak-out was then held at Garland Hall.

poster callng for a rally to end the hopkins contracts with ICE

In light of recent events and the continuing human rights violations committed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), TRU calls on Johns Hopkins University to drop its contract with the agency. As TRU member Sam Agarwal stated in an article in the JHU News-Letter, if Hopkins wants to live up to its pledge to be a sanctuary campus, it must terminate this financial partnership.

TRU will co-sponsor a “playdate” rally and march to bring attention to the contracts and call on JHU to end them.
