Defend SB 54 in T.O.! Solidarity Coalition Meeting

The fight to stop the Thousand Oaks City Council, as well as Camarillo's city council, from taking a stance in opposition to California's "sanctuary state" law continues this week!

-- Monday evening, May 21, the newly formed Thousand Oaks Solidarity Coalition is meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Lundring Center on the CLU campus, to continue strategizing our advocacy on behalf of the California Values Act. We'll discuss the current state of play, messaging for these city council meetings, and ways we can get that message out between now and the T.O. council meeting on June 5.

-- Wednesday, May 23, at 5 p.m., the Camarillo City Council will consider joining the federal lawsuit against SB 54. The anti-immigrant agitators who have descended on council meetings across the southland will be out in force -- and we must turn out as well!

If you need more information about the Thousand Oaks Solidarity Coalition, please contact Julie Diaz Martinez or Willie Lubka

For more information about the Camarillo #DefendSB54 Coalition, please contact Martita orMarisa.
