On Monday, we marched in Oakland. On Wednesday, we phone-banked in San Francisco while fast food workers occupied Republican senators’ offices. By the afternoon, we were victorious. Faced with our relentless opposition all across the country, Trump’s pick for anti-labor secretary, fast food CEO Andrew Puzder was forced to withdraw his nomination. Together we defeated the first of Trump’s #SwampCabinet.
We can keep winning. And in the face of recent ICE raids terrifying immigrant communities, we must keep fighting to keep all families together. Can you join us for our next #ResistTrumpTuesdays to fight mass deportations? Stand together for sanctuary next Tuesday 11:30am at the Oakland federal building.
And save the date for a special Bay Resistance launch on March 4th where we’ll gather, hold mass trainings, and build the resistance!
As we protest against anti-immigrant policies nationally, there’s something we can do right here in the Bay Area. It’s simple: Sheriff Ahern of Alameda County needs to stop collaborating with ICE. Our local law enforcement should not be the agents of Trump’s inhumane anti-immigrant regime. Will you stand with us next Tuesday to put a stop to Sheriff Ahern’s pro-Trump, pro-deportation agenda?
Just this week ICE arrested Daniel Medina, a young father granted permission to live here under Obama’s DREAM Act for immigrants brought here as children. Join our ICE response volunteer team now so we can defend people like Daniel Medina.
