Join The Micah Center at City Hall to stand for dignity, protection for immigrants

The city has said that no city employees, including police, ever ask about immigration status. This is an excellent standard to set, and community members have requested that this be written as an official policy to solidify it and provide accountability to ensure that it is fully carried out.

Some of our most vulnerable, immigrant brothers and sisters live in fear of any contact with city of Grand Rapids employees because of the consequences it could have for their families. 

The city has said that no city employees, including police, ever ask about immigration status. This is an excellent standard to set, and community members have requested that this be written as an official policy to solidify it and provide accountability to ensure that it is fully carried out.

Email the City Commission today and urge them to affirm their commitment by making this an official policy to help create a stronger, safer Grand Rapids for all of us.

Then, join us today, Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at the City Commission meeting to show and/or speak your support. We will meet at 6:45 p.m. in the Monroe level lobby of City Hall for a briefing before the 7 p.m. meeting on the ninth floor.

Justice only happens when we stand up and act, and the time is now. We're working to be love in action. Join us.
