People's Commission on Ending the Contract with ICE

Date: 
Thu, Sep 13, 2018 - 8:00am to 10:00am

Kent County officials have continued to ignore the injustices committed against the immigrant community. We have marched, attended commission meetings, held a rally at the jail and met with county administrators, yet they refused to end their contract with ICE.

Join us, on Thursday, September 13th for a People's Commission to End the Contract. Instead of going to the Kent County Commission meeting, we will hold our own forum, hear from members of the immigrant community, provide examples of communities across the country that have ended their contracts with ICE and pass our own resolution to make sure that Kent County will not be complicit with ICE officials and the violence they are committing against the immigrant community.

Bring signs and noise makers. We will have some chairs for those who wish to sit during the People's Commission.
