**Join Jews and interfaith partners for noontime vigils in front of the San Francisco Immigration & Customs Enforcement offices (ICE) to stand with the immigrant community and stand for the urgency of a clean Dream Act.***
The interfaith vigils will include singing and chanting and the opportunity to take an action (e.g. make a phone call to a decisionmaker) and learn about ongoing actions to take in support of the Dream Act and immigrant justice.
In mid-January, Jews from across the country gathered in Washington, DC for Let My People Stay, a historic Jewish civil disobedience in support of a clean #DreamActNow. Inspired by this powerful action, hundreds of Bay Area Jews and allies gathered on Friday January 26 to rally in support of immigrant communities. Across the country, immigrant communities are leading a powerful movement demanding a solution for Dreamers, dignity and permanent protections - for Dreamers and all undocumented people.
Rumors that ICE is planning a large-scale immigration sweep to punish California for its statewide protections are increasing the climate of fear and isolation for many, with people reporting missing school, medical appointments, and participation in public life. As Jews, we have seen what happens when those in power scapegoat vulnerable communities, and we refuse to be silent.
February 8 is the current deadline to demonstrate the urgency of a solution for Dreamers as part of the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government.
Join us as we say #LetMyPeopleStay. Check out this event's Facebook Page.
