Our Oakland October 4th

Oakland City council is backing away from a commitment to the community to stop investing in policing policies that are not working and shift toward policy that addresses the root causes of violence.

This Tuesday Oct. 4th the Oakland City Council will look at the possibility of implementing youth curfews day time and night time, expanded Loitering laws and further growing the Gang Injunction areas.

This is a double nightmare for undocumented youth because it creates more opportunities for arrest and ultimately deportation.  Something as small as staying too late at a friends birthday party becomes grounds for deportation through the police and immigration authorities collaboration known as Secure Communities or SCOM.


Come out and resist, don't be the reason our communities get criminalized!
