SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR JUSTICE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY
February 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Sanctuary DMV for a special event on February 14th to show your support for our neighbors who were victims of ICE raids last year and are now fighting against deportation. On July 11th and 12th, ICE detained twelve peple in the Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods. According to accounts of some of the incidents, teh DC police were directly involved in these ICE detentions. We stand with our neighbors and oppose DC police and ICE targeting and criminalizing members of our communitiy and are helping to raise funds for legal defense and asylum costs.
