RE: Potential ICE Activity Sunday

“We are clear about our Oakland values and our American values. I want to assure members of our community not to panic but to be prepared, know your rights and responsibilities. Know that you are in a community where you are supported, respected, and appreciated. I encourage my community to utilize the resources that are available in the Bay Area such as Centro Legal De La Raza, the Legal Observers Core, and the Rapid Response Network. These resources are dedicated to educating the community on what they do and do not have to do if they encounter ICE. We are a proud Sanctuary city here in Oakland and we know our rights and our values.”

Centro Legal De La Raza
3400 E 12th St, Oakland, CA 94601
