Restoring Trust Campaign (Turning the Tide)

The Restoring Trust campaign urges local officials to not be accomplices to detention and deportation. Specifically we ask them to not comply with voluntary requests from ICE to hold and turn over people for deportation. A growing number of cities have enacted these progressive policies,including Washington DC, Santa Clara, CA, and Cook County, Illinois and more.

Together we’re forging an alternative to the Arizonification of our country.

Take Action!

The week of July 9th, 2012 communities across the country will be taking action to restore trust by raising awareness of how local jail policies force people into the deportation system and telling local law enforcement, “Restore Trust! Break ICE’s hold on our community.”

Ways your community can participate in the week of action:

  • Host a community educational event.
  • Deliver letter to local decision makers as part of public action and/or press event Download
  • Hold a press conference to launch new local campaign
  • Direct action (vigil, rally, march)
  • Call a public meeting or forum with local law enforcement or elected officials

For suggestions, feedback, or advice on your campaign or your activities for the week of action, contact: [email protected] or [email protected]
