Beacon Shows Up to Say Families Belong Together

The Families Belong Together rally in Beacon was one of more than 750 events nationwide on June 30 to protest immigrant family separation and imprisonment at the border. Despite mid-afternoon temps in the high 90s, participants filled Polhill Park and lined up along all four corners of Route 9D and Main Street.
