RISE UP 2: Irvine City Council Meeting

  • Irvine City Hall 1 Civic Center Plaza Irvine, CA 92606 (map)

URGENT!!! The City of Irvine has put forward on the next City of Irvine's council meeting or the city to discuss CALIFORNIA STATE SENATE BILL 54 (SB54). This would remove Irvine as a Sanctuary City. Irvine is one of the MOST diverse cities in the country! Irvine is home to the Global Village Festival and the Irvine Korean Cultural Festival that welcomes tens of thousands of residents to celebrate the richness of our multicultural community. Our strong diverse population is what has made Irvine a great city. This is a city made where nearly 60% are either foreign born or are the children of foreign born. 

SANCTUARY CITIES PROTECT OUR CITIES AND IT HELPS OUR POLICE. We need ALL residents to be able to call the police and come forward as witnesses WITHOUT being afraid of their legal status. When communities members are afraid, that puts us all at risk. 

Anti-immigrant rhetoric is not what Irvine should be about - it has no place in this city! 

Please show up at 5:45 to show your support for Irvine’s strong diversity, to our multicultural community and for our police!
