Syracuse Rapid Response Team Meeting 10/12

The Syracuse Rapid Response Team will be meeting at the Worker’s Center Thursday, October 12 at 6:30pm.

At the end of September, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted ruthless raids over the course of 4 days, which resulted in over 500 immigrants being rounded up. This specific raid–disgustingly called “Operation Safe Cities”– was specifically targeted towards sanctuary cities. The Trump Administration’s unrelenting attacks on immigrants demonstrates the importance of our Rapid Response Team. Please join us at the next meeting this Thursday. Becoming a member of the Syracuse Rapid Response team is a concrete way you can be in solidarity with immigrant members of our community. Come to the meeting and a bring a friend!
