As a nation of immigrants, we know that America is stronger because of its diversity. To help answer questions and hear what Contra Costa residents have to say about the current changes and uncertainty in our nation's immigration system, we will host an immigration town hall on Monday, August 5th at 6:30 p.m. at St. Mark's Catholic Church in Richmond.
During the town hall, I will give a firsthand account of what I have seen at detention facilities on the southern border and discuss the work we are doing in Congress to protect immigrant rights and ensure detainees are treated with the dignity they deserve. We will be joined by an expert panel to talk about the Administration's actions including its changes to asylum law, fight to put a citizenship question in the Census, and recently launched raids.
Legal resources and information about protecting your rights-regardless of immigration status-will be available in English and Spanish. Translation services will also be available during the event.
We hope you will join us! RSVP by clicking the graphic below, and please feel free to share this information with anyone you know who would benefit from this event.
