Thanks to the adamant efforts of SIREN leaders, our partners in the FIRE coalition and allies on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors affirmed their position of not working with ICE and respecting the due process rights of all immigrants. This represents an important victory for our immigrant and refugee communities! In moments like these, we are reminded of the power of our community, and how critical it is for us to stand and speak up at every level of government.
We must continue to be vigilant and loud when it comes to the injustices and cruelty of the current administration. Seeing children in detention, robbed of their freedom and innocence, is an abomination few could have imagined. The incarceration and persecution of humanitarian volunteers providing water and support to immigrants on their journey to this country is happening today. These dark realities remind us that our work is fundamentally about human rights and the dignity of all people, regardless of their legal status, nationality, color, gender, etc.
We firmly believe that immigrants facing disease deserve dignity, compassion, and medical care. Our SIREN leaders, staff, and supporters understand the vital importance of this work and implore your support in this journey.
SIREN is committed to being a strong, vocal advocate pushing for #Health4All, as part of our unrelenting agenda for human rights and dignity for all! We invite you to join us with making a donation today in honor of immigrants needing health care.
In community spirit,
Services, Immigrant Rights & Education Network (SIREN)
