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:

-Post Sanctuary DMV Rapid Response flyers and United We Dream’s multilingual know your rights images in your community.

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.
