The Nuns on the Bus Ohio and Intercommunity Justice and Peace Centerinvite students, immigrant families, people of faith, the general public and members of the media to a four day bus tour exposing the unjust system of immigration detention.

Sunday, March 18, 2018 – Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Beginning on Monday, March 19 a school bus sponsored by Ohio Nuns on the Bus will be made available to anyone who wishes to ride with the group to multiple events in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. Hop on, hop off; ride for an entire day or ride for the whole week! People wishing to attend the tour events do not have to ride the bus, but the experience of building community while taking collective action by riding a bus paints a powerful image for the world to see.

Each day, thousands of undocumented immigrants are forcibly removed from their families and held as criminals in our local jails/detention centers. Join us to expose this unjust system and demand human treatment of our migrant neighbors.

Join us for the rest of the week (Links below are to the Facebook Events for each day)
