Earlier today, immigrant rights activists launched the Colorado Rapid Response Network to help immigrants in case of raids and other abuses. Raleigh Burleigh spoke with Carla Castedo, Colorado director for Mi Familia Vota, to learn more about the cross-organizational, statewide initiative.
The 24 hour hotline, staffed with over 100 volunteers trained to track, verify, and confirm ICE raids in immigrant communities, is: 1-844-UNITE-41 (1-844-864-8341).
Rev. Shawna Foster of Two Rivers Unitarian Church announced this past Sunday at a Mother’s Day Vigil for Immigrant Families that her congregation in partnership with the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition will offer sanctuary in the Roaring Fork Valley. KDNK News intern Jen Platero reports.
