Cambridge Somerville Makes Calls for Immigrant's Rights!

Recently, grassroots progressive activism has notched some major victories — and our opposition is taking notice. The intense and sustained pressure from people like you has forced them to get creative in their attacks.
Governor Baker has now introduced legislation that is as creative as it is unconstitutional. In the wake of the Lunn Decision in the Mass Supreme Court, a ruling that prohibits local court officers from following ICE detainer orders, Baker's new bill seeks to backdoor warrantless detention back into Mass law. Allegedly designed to facilitate "cooperation" with federal agents in the "transfer of convicted criminals," this is language so broad that instead of promoting "public safety" (its stated purpose) it allows local law enforcement to serve as adjunct deportation agents.
Baker's bad bill must be stopped before it can be voted into law. Join us every Tuesday evening in August at the Workbar in Cambridge (45 prospect st) from 6:30-9 as we will apply targeted phone-banking pressure statewide to both oppose this legislation and support the Safe Communities Act.

Tuesday, August 15th: Make calls for immigrants' rights!

The Safe Communities Act protects the civil rights, safety and well-being of all residents by drawing a clear line between immigration enforcement and public safety. We encourage you to join us this Tuesday, August 8 at 6:30 pm for a phone banking session in support of this worthwhile cause at Workbar in Cambridge (45 Prospect St).
