  • Live Stream: Which Way Forward - Town Hall Discussion on Immigrant Rights and Law Enforcement in LA County

    Watch the livestream of the Town Hall event on Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015 from 6-8pm.

    Find more information below and at the Facebook Event link here:

    Recent events have underscored the significance of community policing initiatives and amplified the importance of trust in law enforcement. With immigration reform stalled in Congress and DAPA/the expansion of DACA temporarily blocked by the courts, there is growing community anxiety as ICE is preparing to implement its newest deportation initiative. Within this context, Los Angeles County has an obligation to protect all of its residents and to provide leadership for the rest of the country.

    Instead, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is formulating a policy of collaboration with ICE, which among other things, will include the implementation of the new Priority Enforcement Program (PEP or PEP-Comm) in Los Angeles County. This policy is likely to set the standard for the rest of the country.

    It is of the utmost importance that community members, along with other important stakeholders, have an opportunity to discuss how local law enforcement collaboration with ICE directly affects them and their community.

    We invite you to join us in this discussion!
