TRUTH Act Forum Set for July 30 in Martinez
Hold local leaders accountable for immigration enforcement actions at the local level
With so much fear and misinformation about immigration and enforcement swirling around our community, the upcoming TRUTH Act Forum on July 30 represents an excellent opportunity to get your questions answered and have your voice heard. There will be Spanish language translation services available. 

TRUTH Act Forums are hosted throughout the state to allow space for communities to get clarity about their Sheriff's practices and levels of collaboration with ICE (which vary from county to county), ask questions and voice concerns, all in a public forum. 

This state law was a tremendous Civil Rights victory here in California, and provides a number of protections to our vulnerable immigrant and undocumented communities.
