"We are entering our third year of providing support and defense for our undocumented friends and neighbors throughout Monterey County. We look forward to a day when what we are doing is no longer necessary and people can live their lives in peace without fear of intrusion by ICE or the Border Patrol.

Until then, the work continues. We are an all-volunteer organization. No one is paid for their efforts. If you’re able, please donate to support our ongoing initiatives. Your donation is tax-deductible."

What We Accomplish with Your Support

  • We maintain a 24/7 hotline phone system and database to receive reports of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) activities and connect detainees with legal support if arrested.
  • We offer Rapid Response training to teach volunteers how to legally observe and document ICE detentions to ensure that the Constitutional rights of detainees and their families are not violated.
  • We have printed and distributed over 100,000 wallet cards throughout the county, providing residents with the hotline phone numbers for reporting ICE-related activities.
  • We have also printed and distributed 100,000+ “Know Your Rights” Red Cards that inform immigrants of their rights under the Constitution and provide information about legal assistance if detained.
  • We continue to organize “Know Your Rights” workshops for immigrants throughout the county.
  • We help parents complete Child Safety Plans in schools, places of worship, and other trusted venues. We also train new volunteers on how to provide this assistance.
