The Above Ground Railroad
The Above Ground Railroad is a group that has formed to support and protect the civil rights of citizens and dreamers. We are alarmed by the hate speech that the recent election has normalized and our country's reaction to the unleashing of this hate. It is our mission to support individuals who have been targeted by this hate speech with education and organization.
1. ORGANIZE SUPPORT FOR STATE AND LOCAL GROUPS AND OFFICIALS WHO ARE PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS AND RESISTING ANY EFFORTS TO UNDO PROTECTIONS ALREADY ESTABLISHED.
2. CREATE EDUCATION FORUMS AROUND CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUES OF GENDER, RACE, RELIGION, LGBT, AND IMMIGRATION STATUS.
3. TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT THAT PRIVATIZATION CAN HURT US AND IS PART OF THE NEW AGENDA.
