The SF Department of Public Health (SFDPH) is displacing severely mentally ill residents that are permanently housed at the Behavioral Health Center’s Adult Residential Facility (ARF) to make way for a Homeless Navigation Center with temporary shelter beds. The DPH administration sent a letter informing Behavior Health Care Workers that the adult population will be shrinking by 41 beds to only 14 permanent beds. In addition to residents being displaced, SFDPH administration is also displacing city workers by outsourcing their work to an outside non-profit.

30 Days of Action to Close the Camps (ICE SF)
A month of daily actions every day in August from Noon to 1pm
(Unless otherwise specified)
ICE – San Francisco
630 Sansome St
Each daily action is conducted by a different sector or community group. Actions are whatever a group would like, with their own specific message — it’s up to each group.
There are some FB sites set up by each group.
See FB site for all listings / details. Listed are remaining events/actions at ICE for August. Descriptions are provided of groups that have made event pages on FB. A few have posted on Indbay.
Remaining EVENTS for August at ICE in San Francisco:
Tuesday, August 20, Comedians, Improvisers, Actors: Close the Camp
Check back for info!
Wednesday, August 21, Lawyers, Legal Workers – End the Raids, Close the Camps No More Deportations
It is critical for members of the legal profession to stand up and demonstrate our resistance because we have witnessed the ways in which immigrants are traumatized (and re-
traumatized), devalued, and oppressed by the day-to-day workings of a legal system that is designed to reinforce this nation’s legacy of white supremacy, systemic violence, and
colonialism. This legacy not only manifests itself in the heinous conditions at detention camps or the unconscionable separation of families at the border, but also in the everyday
practices of legal systems like Immigration Court.
Thursday, August 22, San Mateo County Activists
Join San Mateo county groups and individuals at ICE SF to show our support for immigrants and to rally against the administration’s cruel and inhumane policies and actions. Bring
your signs, banners and let’s make noise
Organized by: Pacifica Social Justice
Friday, August 23, From Warsaw to Palestine to the Rio Grande
Join us in making the connection between the forced displacement of asylum seekers and refugees coming into the US and their confinement in US concentration camps with the
on-going forced displacement of the Palestinian people, as a result of the founding and on-going colonization of Palestine by the state of Israel, and the confining of Palestinian
people into walled ghettos, refugee camps and the large concentration camp of Gaza.
As Jewish people, our collective histories and understanding of ethnic cleansing and genocide move us to stand with the people of Palestine and those seeking asylum at the US
border. We welcome all those who want to stand with us in solidarity.
Saturday, Noon – 3:00pm, August 24, Ocupella, The Thrive Street Choir & Idle No More
Sing the truth to ICE! Bring your voice, musical instruments, creative signs and be ready to paint!
Sunday, August 25, Health / Public Health Workers
Calling all Public Health & Healthcare Workers to be in solidarity with Migrant communities to demand an End to ICE Raids & Closing of the Camps.
Access needs will soon be available
Monday, August 26, Kehilla and Or Shalom Day
Immigrant children are dying in federal custody. Children in detention are being denied soap, showers, clean water, blankets, decent food, clean clothes. Our neighbors are afraid
take their kids to school, go shopping, attend church.
These detention centers are not death camps – but our history as Jews teaches us that this is how it starts: demonizing people, rounding people up, separating families. It’s up to
US to STOP IT – Never Again means Now!
Tuesday, August 27, Adoptees – Close the Camps
Calling all adoptees to be in solidarity with migrant communities.. Adoptees know the devastating consequences of family separation. And we see clearly that separation through
adoption and immigration, and other unjust government systems, are deeply linked. When adoptees stand with migrant communities, we expose those connections.
Wednesday, August 28, Fat & Disability Communities Unite to CLOSE the Camps!
No Body is Disposable! Calling all Fat people, all Disabled people, all our loved ones, allies and accomplices to unite in solidarity with migrants. Together we demand an end to the
brutal treatment of migrants, an end to concentration camps, and an end to ICE.
Thursday, August 29, A Day Without Immigrants
Friday, August 30, Journalists Against Detention Camps
Calling all reporters, writers, photojournalists, videographers, producers, investigators and media makers. As journalists we are expected to remain neutral, unbiased. But we can
no longer remain neutral in the face of atrocities committed against asylum seekers and undocumented Americans.
