Join the Fight: Townhall on Immigration Reform

St. John the Evangelist Church, 1661 15th St., San Francisco

Please join community-based organizations, interfaith groups, legal advocates, worker centers, labor and immigrant and community members from SF to learn about what is being proposed at the national level, the impacts our current broken immigration system is having on our communities and what YOU can do locally and statewide to address the criminalization and deportation of our immigrant communities.
  • Learn about the CIR proposals coming out of DC and the negative impacts these could have on workers, families, students.    
  • Hear testimony from community members including: DREAMers, union workers, low-wage workers, survivors of S-comm and those already torn apart by deportation proceedings. 
  • Get engaged and mobilize locally to help end ICE & police collaboration in San Francisco, ensure due process for all immigrants and demand inclusive and just immigration reform! Make California a leader in fighting deportations!
