Service for Immigrants at ICE Detention Facility

Contra Costa West County Detention Facility
5555 Giant Highway
94806 Richmond , CA

Join T'ruah rabbis and cantors in protesting the detention of immigrants like Hugo Mejia and thousands like him across the country. Hugo has lived in California for over fifteen years. He's a loving family man with three children, an active community and school volunteer, and a dedicated worker who was detained at the beginning of May when reporting to construction work at an air base.

Sing and pray together, listen to the Torah of Justice, hear the call of the shofar, and demand that ICE and the Trump Administration repent of their sinful ways and return to a path of compassion and humanity.

Phone Bank for SB 10 - Bail Reform Now!

ACLU of Northern CA Headquarters
39 Drumm Street
94111 San Francisco , CA

Please join us to call ACLU members and supporters in critical Assembly districts throughout California to ask them to urge their Assemblymembers to support SB 10, important legislation to ensure that California doesn't continue to hold people in jail simply because they are too poor to afford bail. Food and training will be provided. Please bring your own phone (headphones recommended) and tablet or laptop. We will have a few ipads available for those who do not have a tablet or laptop and some paper call lists for those who don't love technology!
