The People’s Academy Rally and Teach In

Join us for The People’s Academy to stand against the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “Citizen’s Academy”! On September 15th, ICE was planning to hold a “Citizen’s Academy” to teach civilians the tactics they employ to criminalize our communities. While ICE attempts to rationalize the terror they bring into our communities, we know the truth of the harms that ICE and all white supremacist institutions bring into our neighborhoods!

After a groundswell of protest led by our coalition, ICE decided to “postpone” its Citizens Academy until next year. But we are still gathering for a rally and teach-in to denounce the white supremacist institutions of ICE, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and police as they attack our communities, and to call on our elected officials to divest money away from ICE, CBP, and police, and towards resources that will reverse the chronic disinvestment these communities have faced for decades.
