Hey folks, you are all invited to this training about how to help prevent detentions and deportations in the bay area.
There is a new Rapid Response Network of people responding to ICE (immigration) raids in real time. The immigrant + undocumented organizers behind this effort are calling out for people to join the solidarity network, and this is the first step. Once you are trained, you can choose to be part of this critical network and receive alerts when a raid is happening in your area. Then you can choose to respond to raids as a legal observer or support figure.
WHAT: Practicing Solidarity During Immigration Raids: Rapid Response Network Training
WHERE: East Bay Community Space – Telegraph & 55th St., Oakland CA
WHEN: Sunday, March 26, 12-2pm
Please share the event widely:
By attending a Solidarity Training you will receive training to volunteer your time to document and monitor ICE officials during raids in real-time. The Solidarity Training will cover:
Overview of ICE raids, tactics and strategies
Operation of Migra Watch hotline
Rights & Risks of legal observers
The goal is to equip you with the tools and information for you to register with ILM as a legal observer and be ready to respond to ICE raid alerts through our Migra Watch hotline. By monitoring and documenting ICE enforcement we’ll gather probable evidence to fight an individual’s detention.
Migra Watch is a program of the Immigrant Liberation Movement (ILM), which was created by the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, East Bay Immigrant Youth Coalition, Faith in Action Bay Area/PICO California, and Pangea Legal Services in the Fall of 2016.
