“LET OUR PEOPLE GO” PROTEST

Next #LetOurPeopleGo Protest

Sunday, August 12 at 11 am

West County Detention Facility

5555 Giant Hwy, Richmond, CA

Please join us at this “Let Our People Go” protest. We will be protesting for a change in policy so that immigrants being held at the West County Detention Center will be released immediately, rather than being transferred to out-of-state or remote California locations that increase the anguish for family members who lose access to visitation. 

We will also be protesting to keep the heat on the Contra Costa County sheriff. Although the county contract with ICE to detain immigrants is finally ending in Contra Costa following large protests, we need to show up for people at the jail being unjustly held due to policies of mass incarceration.

See item 9 below, and visit the MVCAN Civil Rights/ Immigration Team page for more info about this and other actions. 

The next CIVIL RIGHTS/IMMIGRATION TEAM meeting will take place before the MVCAN kickoff meeting on Sunday, Aug 12 at 5:15 at the Mill Valley Golf Clubhouse.
