Detention Watch Network is reporting plans for nationwide ICE raids targeting over 8,000 people the week of September 16-21. We know that raids have already been happening in our area: Alexandria, Annandale, Centreville, and Prince William County. In the days to come, local racial justice organizations will need to be increasingly prepared to respond to these threats. A couple of opportunities this week to get active:
–Study up on raids and community responses using these resources from the Immigrant Defense Project so you can mobilize when there are calls to action
-Commit NOW to coming to an immigration action in the near future. Invite a friend to hold you accountable to that commitment or to join you.
