OUR NEXT STEP IN STRENGTHENING ANN ARBOR’S STATUS AS A SANCTUARY CITY

Our calls, emails, and mobilization to the city council meeting on February 21st resulted in the city council postposing the first reading of the “Don’t Ask” ordinance in order to improve the language.

The overall intent of the “Don’t Ask” ordinance is to protect undocumented people in our community by limiting the City of Ann Arbor’s collection of information related to whether someone is documented or not.
