CA Religious & Faith Leaders: Please Sign TRUST ACT Letter to CA Sheriffs

Sign-on Letter from 
 
California Faith Leaders to
Sheriff’s Association & Gov. Brown
re: TRUST Act (A.B. 4)


           


Each day CA goes without the TRUST Act, the pain of deportation and family separation impacts hundreds more of our California neighbors.

Dear Clergy, Religious & Congregational leaders: 
 
We invite you to please take 2 minutes to read and sign this letter addressed to the California State Sheriff’s Association (cc:Gov. Jerry Brown),  asking the Sheriff’s Association to remove their opposition to the TRUST Act and support the TRUST ACT in its current amended form.  The voice of the faith community is critical to counter the powerful voices of law enforcement, as we express the need for common sense measures to protect due process and the unity of all California families.  

Read the letter in Spanish

Deadline to sign is August 25, 2013-  before the next meeting between the Sheriff’s Assoc. & Gov. Brown.

Please take a moment to forward to your colleagues.

This letter is co-sponsored by the following faith networks in California:  The Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights (Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice – CLUE-CA),  Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy (EBASE), the Immigration Task Force of the California Pacific Conference of the United Methodist Church,  Universal Assembly of Pentecostal Churches, Inc., The Interfaith Committee for Worker Justice ( San Diego), Council on American-Islamic Relations- Los Angeles, Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of California,  The Episcopal Diocese of California Migration and Immigration Task Force, the United Church of Christ Immigration Taskforce, The Immigration Task Force of the California-Nevada Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church,  CLUE-Orange County, The United Church of Christ-Southern California and Nevada Conference, Council of American-Islamic Relations- SF-Bay Area, Reform CA-the California Reform Jewish Movement.
 
Whether or not you are part of one of these networks,  
we invite all religious leaders to sign and make your voice heard!
   
You may also email hand collected Signatures of Faith Leaders and send to:  volunteericir@gmail.com or ICIR/CLUE,1814 Franklin St., #325, Oakland, CA  94612.
Also, EVERYONE CAN JOIN THE INTERFAITH CALL-IN DAY:  AUGUST 22nd
Ask Governor Brown to sign the most inclusive TRUST Act possible into law this year. Your call will only take minutes, but it could keep families from being torn apart, protect battered spouses and victims of crimes, and bring a sense of safety, dignity, and trust to the interactions between law enforcement and California’s 3 million undocumented immigrants.
