In our First Hundred Days, we:
Created a Know Your Rights red card that provides local legal resources for Monterey County residents.
Set up the countywide Rapid Response Hotline for residents to call when ICE is active in the community. Their call triggers a message that mobilizes nearby Rapid Response volunteers to verify and document detentions or raids.
Printed and distributed 40,000 each of Know Your Rights and hotline cards through Latino and other grassroots organizations, churches, health clinics, unions, and non-profits serving immigrant communities.
Brought San Francisco-based trainers from MigraWatch and Pangea Legal Services to train over 100 Rapid Response volunteers in how to safely and peacefully monitor and document detention scenes.
Received training by the Monterey County Bar Association in family preparedness and pre-guardianship paperwork – helping immigrant families to prepare in the event of detention or deportation.
