Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorICE Out of CA
Are you outraged that the Alameda County Sheriff's Dept. is retweeting white supremacists?

Are you angry that Sheriff Ahern and other sheriffs want to keep deporting our loved ones? (The CA State Sheriffs Association is trying to bully Gov Brown into further weakening SB 54, the "Sanctuary" bill that would push back on Trump's deportation machine!)

Then join us tomorrow to say NO to white supremacy and racism!

You probably already heard that on Sunday night, the Alameda County Sheriff's official twitter account retweeted infamous white supremacist Richard Spencer.

The department's claiming this is an "accident," but in fact it's part of a long pattern of racist attitudes and practices.

This same deputy, Sergeant Kelly, made headlines defending the arrest of a fruit vendor a few months ago, saying: "If you don't enforce this type of selling, it will begin to look like a Third World fruit market."

And Sheriff Ahern himself signed a letter endorsing white nationalist Jeff Sessions' nomination as Attorney General. And he's also said he can identify undocumented immigrants based on "language, luggage, and clothing."

We cannot remain silent.
