Our friends at Placer People of Faith Together have sent us this notice:
To reduce some of the fear that immigrant community is facing around the recent ICE raids in Placer County, we have collaborated with an immigration attorney, Sara Bobbitt, from the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services to host two Know Your Rights Legal Workshops in the Auburn and Roseville area during the first week of February. The presentations will be focused on what to do to prepare for a raid, your rights when encountering ICE, and what to if you do get arrested. Flyers are attached within this e-mail (in Spanish). Please spread this information widely!
–Tuesday, February 2 at 6:00 PM at Rock Creek Elementary School in Auburn, California
–Sunday, February 7th at 1:30 PM at St. Rose Catholic Church in Roseville, California
These raids being conducted in our neighborhoods are tearing families apart and are NOT representing what our great nation is all about.
Please share this information with families you know.
