ICE Out of the Courts: Canvassing in Sunset Park

  • Sunset Park at 41st and 5th Ave Brooklyn, NY (map)

Fight against ICE's harassment of immigrants! Come out with NYC-DSA's Immigrant Justice Working group to collect signatures urging the Chief Judge of New York State, Janet DiFiore, to keep ICE out of the courts and ensure equal justice for undocumented New Yorkers.

Our campaign is growing and we've gotten over 1,500 signatures on our petition so far, but ICE's courthouse arrests continue as DiFiore and the Office of Court Administration do nothing to stop them! We need your help to raise awareness about this issue and elevate our demands. 

While NYC-DSA has done plenty of canvassing in South Brooklyn, this will be our first ICE Out of the Courts canvass in the neighborhood, and we're excited to bring the campaign to the Sunset Park community. This is a great event for those who want to talk about ICE's injustices and/or brush up on their canvassing skills! Come out, even if it's your first DSA Immigrant Justice action. 

We'll meet at Sunset Park at 41st and 5th Ave and start off with a quick canvassing training before collecting signatures in the park. 

Please RSVP to immigrant.justice@socialists.nyc so we can get a proper head count for petitioning materials.
