Lights for Liberty Rally and March!

 Thank you for joining us on July 12 and 13 as the communities of Santa Maria, Arroyo Grande and San Luis Obispo shined the light on what is happening in immigration detention centers at the border and across the country!

 

We estimate about 400 people attended the event in San Luis Obispo. Click below to see photos of the events.

TRUTH Act Forum

The TRUTH Act (AB2792) went into effect in California on Jan. 1, 2017. It pertains to the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency and its access to individuals who have come in contact with law enforcement during the previous calendar year.

In 2018, we coordinated a community response to share questions and concerns during SLO County Sheriff Ian Parkinson's  presentation to the Board of Supervisors.

In 2019, we worked with a coalition of community leaders to tour the jail and meet with Sheriff Parkinson in an effort to ensure transparency and accountability regarding the interactions of local law enforcement with ICE.
