HERE TO STAY

Declare our communities safe spaces for immigrants and keep undocumented community members out of reach of a deportation machine.

 

The current administration is trying to ban Muslims and prevent refugees from entering the country, and it plans to deport millions and build a wall. To embrace

our differences in support of a more unified America, we need to keep immigrants and undocumented community members safe from the administration’s deportation machine and to welcome those in need.  The focus of this campaign:
 

  • Support immigrants via Freedom Cities to ensure our towns are sanctuaries

  • Support refugees in building their lives in the U.S. (sponsorship, outreach, community building)

  • Educate both the public (rallies & outreach) and ourselves (how to help immigrants in need)

 

We will employ the tactics of People Power, the grassroots resistance program of the ACLU, so that local police do not wrongly aid immigration agents. We will work with existing immigrant and refugee organizations to support their efforts. Through rallies and educational programs, we will increase public awareness and improve our own ability to respond to deportations.
