Organizers say “It’s the efforts to defend Black lives and protect migrant rights that make our cities safer, not Trump’s extra enforcement promises.”

In the wake of Donald Trump’s attack on “sanctuary” cities, Black, Latinx, and migrant organizations are coming together to push Chicago to stand in defiance of the President, defend the constitution, and promote policies that offer real safety to all residents.

At the press conference, representatives will share the details of their legislative proposals to protect city residents from state violence through decriminalization and reinvesting city resources from enforcement into long-term safety community institutions.

Organized Communities Against Deportations, Black Youth Project 100, Mijente, and others will attend the press conference announcing new push for expanded Sanctuary Legislation.

The press conference will be held at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, January 26th at City hall, 2nd Fl, Chicago.
