Donald Trump has promised more surveillance, more racial profiling and “law and order,” more deportations, torture, and mass incarceration, and less freedom of religion, speech, and assembly.
Like you, we are outraged. But we are converting that outrage into powerful political action. Please join us!
A grassroots movement to pass local laws to prohibit cooperation with federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies so that when Trump comes to enlist these communities to help him trample the Bill of Rights, they will have the power to say NO.
We can and must go on the offensive now. Please Donate now to support this campaign..
This is the most practical, effective, and achievable action local communities can take to fight surveillance, discriminatory policing, mass deportations, infiltration of religious and political organizations and other abuses that might flow out of Washington in the next four years.
When the Patriot Act passed in 2001, we helped over 400 cities become “Civil Liberties Safe Zones.”
We need to do that again!
We have developed an organizing tool kits that include model resolutions and ordinances that can transform communities into bastions of resistance.
Our model ordinance prevents local police from cooperating with federal immigration authorities, infiltrating religious and political organizations, and implementing discriminatory profiling. Another model ordinance protects privacy on social media and the right to protest. Ordinance are binding on the police and city.
All of this takes resources though and that’s why we need your help.
