DEFEAT TRUMPISM & SAVE DEMOCRACY
In Support of Social Justice
“It’s not enough to just say the words Black Lives Matter, we must make it true. We need to be willing to listen, learn, protect and lift up our Black community.
The murder of George Floyd may have brought the efforts of the BLM movement to your attention, but right here in our own area we’ve seen people die during interactions with police. There are many local activist and organizations who have always been doing the work of social justice and building up of the Black community and other communities of color.
We are encouraged by the ongoing protest happening throughout the surrounding areas of Pierce County and grateful to all those willing to stand in solidarity to protect Black lives. We welcome your support of racial justice and hope you will engage with local groups who need your support to make sure our community is a place where everyone is safe and has the ability to thrive.”

So many communities across the country have already started holding their local officials accountable and demanding they divert funds from the police, ICE, and CBP. And it’s working.
Your money could be better spent on services and personnel that could help reduce the need for these agencies.
Call your local officials today and demand they start using those funds to BETTER serve the communities they are in office to represent. #DefundThePolice
Call to Action: Justice for Medically-Abused Immigrants in Irwin Detention Center
You may have seen the news about the violent abuse and medical neglect that immigrants have experienced at the Irwin Detention Center in Georgia and the NWDC in Tacoma.
The sickening details exposed by a brave whistleblower included the I.C.E and detention staff’s refusal to treat detained patients with COVD, and, more horribly, the forced-sterilization of immigrant women with little or no explanation.
Take the time to call your Congressional representatives, and demand they publicly call for an immediate, on-the-ground investigation into this for-profit I.C.E facility by the Office of Inspector General.
