Families Belong Together Rally

Monday, June 18, 2018   (0 Comments)
Dr. Roy Aranda, 2016 NYSPA President, attended a rally in front of Congressman Pete King’s District Office in Massapequa on June 14, 2018 and  quite literally was given a bullhorn to address the crowd   as one of the organizing agencies (Families Belong Together/Familias Unidas No Divididas) on the unjustified separation of children from their families at the border and the irreversible trauma perpetrated on the children and their families for the crime of seeking a better life.
 
Dr. Aranda also spoke on behalf of NYSPA at the request of President Pat Dowds. He distributed about 100 copies of a 2-sided flyer with a statement he prepared on one side and New York State Psychological Association's Statement on Children Separated From their Parents at the Border on the other side; several were taken to a second rally at a different location.
