NEXT MEETING - OCTOBER 6, 4:00 PM, MV COMMUNITY CENTER LOBBY

MARIN RAPID RESPONSE TRAINING: Our Immigration/Civil Rights team is sponsoring a special Marin Rapid Response Network Training. This training prepares volunteers to become “Legal Observers” to help monitor ICE activity. When ICE activity is reported, trained Legal Observers are deployed to a specific area within Marin County to "document" the situation. You do not need to have a legal background or be bilingual to be a Legal Observer.

Marin Rapid Response needs more volunteers in Southern Marin to be observers on an on-call basis for encounters that ICE and other law enforcement agencies have with residents. You can be trained in just 2 short hours and be ready to assist our community members.
