Will Long Beach Become a Sanctuary City?

We expect the “Long Beach Values Act”, the Sanctuary ordinance, to come before the City Council in early March. Many are working hard to hammer out the details of this complex legislation.

In the meantime, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is targeting and will continue to target our neighbors. Migra Watch, the network that brings First Responders to scene of ICE raids, is continuing to recruit and train volunteers. There are many ways you can support the work. If you’re not already signed up for the UUCLB Immigrant Justice email list or the Sacred Resistance email list, come to the Social Justice table to add your name. Sacred Resistance will be offering more Migra Watch First Responder trainings in the near future – we can arrange to do one here at UUCLB. Come talk to Jan Ford at the Social Justice table after services.
