Consider taking one action in the month leading up to the Oct. 14-21 Food Week of Action and during that week.

And to groups that we join with in justice work:  Community to Community DevelopmentMigrant Justice, Worker Justice Center of NY, Mano en ManoMijenteMovimiento CosechaPioneer Valley Workers Center, and United We Dream.

Contact your elected officials and ask them to:

Contact companies profiting from ICE and Department of Homeland Security activities separating families.  Visit Movimiento Cosecha and Sleeping Giants to get involved.

Publicly demonstrate your support. Attend vigils, rallies, protests, put a sign on your lawn, etc.  Get trained in direct action.  Now is not the time to remain silent. Follow immigrant organizations on social media and show up when they ask.

Know your rights and defend them.  Watch this ACLU video for how to de-escalate and defend our constitutional rights.

Get educated about white supremacy.  Many group resources exist but this website is specifically for white people who are seeking resources to address white supremacy in their institutions, families, and culture.
