Faith in the Valley Watch Launch
September 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In an effort to be present, witness, and support families in times of crisis, such as ICE raids, detentions, or feeling unsafe or targeted due to hate crimes/threats, Fresno leaders and community members have committed to a Rapid Response network to step in and directly help families.
Because we know ICE operates very quickly throughout the Valley to deport individuals quietly, we are ramping up our efforts to reach a broader area and have a bigger impact. We are ready to launch Faith in the Valley Watch, a new online platform to connect our Rapid Response efforts throughout the Central Valley from Stockton to Bakersfield.
Whether you have been involved in Rapid Response efforts in the past, would like to join as we move forward, or are interested to learn more about detrimental ICE activity in the Central Valley, we invite you to join us as we launch Faith in the Valley Watch.
We are excited to retrain, reorient, and re-register all Rapid Responders into the new platform. In addition, due to the rise of bigotry and aggression by hate groups, we will be using the Rapid Response network to respond to community members or organizations who are victims of violence and threats.
