ICE Raids, Privacy Invasions, Muslim Bans: What You Need to Know
Tue, April 25, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM PDT
When one group’s civil liberties are attacked, inevitably other groups are targeted next, until we have all succumbed.
Hear how the American Civil Liberties Union and allied organizations are fighting back. Learn how you can join forces to protect your families and communities.
Undocumented neighbors living here peacefully and productively for years are being torn from their homes and families, detained and sent away, promoting extreme fear-mongering and fulfilling harmful campaign promises.
Muslims and Middle Easterners are detained at American airports, interrogated and turned away, regardless of visas or legal status—a ban that also prevents refugees fleeing war from seeking safety in the United States.
Privacy protections are being dismantled to grant corporations, police, and various government officials vast surveillance into your personal information.
Discover how the ACLU, along with other organizations and individuals, are gathering together to combat these intrusions on our civil rights. Learn about our plan to have the ACLU Pasadena/Foothills Chapter better serve residents of Glendale and neighboring communities.
