Come stand up for immigrants, refugees and the marginalized folks ensnared by the criminal injustice system who are inside the Bay Area's regional ICE detention center / Contra Costa's county's jail—and show your support for their visiting loved ones too. It's our responsibility to fight the right wing's racist, xenophobic, anti-Muslim, ableist, transphobic, homophobic, misogynist ramp up of authoritarian policing, detention and deportation practices—if not now, when?

Let Our People Go is a youth-and-elder-friendly action that opposes the detentions/deportations and mass incarceration with activist debriefs, music, art, stories and representation from different faith communities (including faithful and faithless humanists). Accessible site, easy parking, bathrooms available closeby in the visitors waiting room.
LET OUR PEOPLE GO was initiated by members of the Kehilla Immigration Committee on the 2nd Sunday of every month, modeled on the 1st Saturday vigils held by our partners at Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity. Many of us, especially caregivers, can’t get to evening meetings or attend long weekend events and marches, but we want to show up and we want to get youth involved in this struggle. This one-hour protest is a way for more families with tweens/teens—especially those with citizenship privileges—to stand up for our peoples and bring more attention to this immoral site of internment right in our community.
