2022 Truth Act Forum & Community Rally

Join us on Nov 15th for a community rally and the 2022 TRUTH Act Forum to demand that the Sheriff STOP transferring community members to ICE. The San Diego Sheriff Department (SDSD) is colluding with DHS/ICE by transferring individuals to ICE, notifying ICE when individuals are released from jail, allowing DHS/ICE access to county property and to individuals in their custody, participating on joint task forces with DHS/ICE, and sharing information, data and resources with DHS/ICE.

The community rally begins Tuesday November 15th at 4pm and then participants will join the County Board of Supervisors Meeting for the TRUTH Act Forum beginning at 5:30pm.

1600 Pacific Highway - East entrance to San Diego County Administration building
