May Meeting: Current Challenges in Protecting Immigrant Families

For 10 years Ventura County Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE-Ventura County) has been on the front lines working for policies – local, state and national – to integrate immigrant families into society.  Representatives of CLUE will discuss how the work has changed since the November election and explain how they are meeting the current challenges in preventing the separation of immigrant families.

Sunday, May 7

3:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Topping Room, E.P. Foster Library

CLUE’s current working groups address:
– Getting ICE Out of Ventura County and California – emerging statewide policies to separate local law enforcement from federal immigration enforcement
– Dreamers Without Borders – working with undocumented students on their high school, college and university campuses
– Sanctuary – how the work is changing since “Liliana Santuario” was in Sanctuary at UCC Simi Valley
– Immigrant detention centers – the vast, growing, and largely invisible for-profit prison-like industry
– “Know Your Rights” – work to educate isolated immigrant communities about basic rights afforded by the Constitution to everyone here and how families are being prepared for separation if a family member is deported.
You are invited to become engaged in this urgent work!  www.cluevc.org, clue@cluevc.org
