FOR ALLIES

1) Support a local immigrant rights organization and show up when they need you for actions, phone banks or volunteer days.

You can support the Alameda County Immigrant Legal Education Partnership (ACILEP) by volunteering this Saturday or next Sunday or by training to be a legal observer to document ICE activity. Sign up and get more information.

Check out these local immigrant rights organizations that Bay Resistance works with — Causa Justa :: Just Cause (volunteer with them here), California Immigrant Policy Center, Mujeres Unidas y Activas, Arab Resource & Organizing Center, Alliance of South Asians Taking Action, United Service Workers West, California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, Free SF, SFILEN and ACUDIR.

2) Donate to cover people’s DACA renewal fees ($495) through the Mission Asset Fund or United We Dream.

3) Show support for DACA and immigrant families –  organize an immigrant appreciation day at your church, workplace, school, or other spaces you’re a part of. You might include welcome signs/posters, art and relaxation spaces, food, and/or music!

Put up a poster in your window  — download free pdfs of art by Micah Bazant here and here, or a poster for school by Favianna Rodriguez here.

4) Create sanctuary spaces – work with your church, workplace, school, or other spaces you’re a part of to help support immigrant families at risk for deportation. If you employ an immigrant worker in your home, learn about making it a sanctuary home.

Check out E4FC on tips for educators on supporting undocumented students and AFT’s comprehensive guide.

5) Provide emotional support to DACA recipients and their families, and support their access to mental health resources if asked. Check out this webinar on Sept. 20th by the California Immigrant Policy Center on the psychological harm of anti-immigrant policies and models of care.

6) Keep posted on national issues and share news from these organizations:
