After launching a 7 day (14 hours a day) emergency food operation when ICE was raiding our communities, we began a new initiative to build community power and defense systems in neighborhoods where our people feel at home. We are mobilizing leaders in their home communities who know their rights, are learning about community resources including health and legal supports, are practicing sharing their skills and support in their neighborhood. We want everyone to know that they are strong leaders and that they are the ones they have been waiting for.
These leaders will be sharing the information about rights and resources with others that they know. Deeply in the culture of our people is the ethic of sharing. We are unleashing the power of our community, our leadership and our cultural values to keep our community safe and build the kind of world we long to see.
