Challenge Greeley's Public Officials and Create Community

Please go to both events or to "Realizing Our Communities"

"Ixxxxxl Immigration-the Untold Stories"

Greeley's District Attorney and Chief of Police are sponsoring an event on September 18th which stereotypes all people who are undocumented as vicious criminals.

Click here for their description of the event.

I believe it is critical to support the victims of crime while/and challenging the racist/nativist assumption that all undocumented persons are criminals as well as discuss how our broken system contributes to all of the above. Members of CIRC and CFIR will be heading up together. See below for details.
