Immigrants are part of California's heart
and soul and have deep roots in our neighborhoods and communities. Trump's
threat to deport 3 million people is a witch hunt targeting some of the most
vulnerable Californians. Our deepest values are at stake.
Tangling our local and state governments with the dirty business of deportations is a threat to the civil rights and safety of all people. This would unleash more racial profiling, wrongful arrests, and mistreatment, further undermining trust between local communities and law enforcement.
- We need to recognize the humanity of all people, including people ICE and Trump demonize as "criminals." Community members with arrests or convictions have al…

Fruit Tree Lovers,
Great news: on Saturday, February 4th, we'll be planting an orchard at Mike Fox Park, which is located alongside the San Lorenzo River by the Riverside Ave bridge.

As a volunteer-run, community-funded organization, we can't buy the trees, gopher baskets, soil amendments, and other supplies and equipment without your help. Whether you have $20 or $200, please giv…
