Speak out at the Gwinnett BOC meeting!
The Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office announced that Sheriff Conway has opted to extend the current 287(g) agreement through the end of June 2020, pending ICE's further revision of the new agreement.
We are deeply disappointed by this decision. We know this will be a long battle, but we are nevertheless dedicated to protecting and fighting for our communities until ICE is out of our county and state (and country altogether).
In light of this development, we have two major campaign updates:
1) In lieu of the Week of Action and the Sunday activist training we will be re-strategizing at our next base meeting.
2) Next Base meeting to next Thursday, June 27, 6:30pm.
At this meeting, we will begin planning next steps, and will launch a research committee.
On June 18, we will still be having our Press Conference at 3:30pm after the 2pm Board of Commissioners Work Session.
Lastly, just want to express incredible gratitude for all of you, your support, and your solidarity. We are extremely thankful you all have shown up, and we hope to see you consistently show up.
