Are you ready to build an equitable California where everyone—our family, friends, colleagues and neighbors can thrive? Join us Tuesday, April 26, 2022, as we gather our collective power virtually for Immigrant Day of Action! This year has started with groundbreaking proposed investments to advance the health, safety, and wellbeing of all Californians, regardless of income or immigration status. On IDA, we will urge our leadership to continue the momentum and keep their promises for bold, equitable public policy that centers immigrant community members who have enriched our state economically and socially for years, but who have been excluded from benefits and protections. IDA will feature a diverse line up of leaders, partners, and impacted community members from across the state, a beautiful celebration of our accomplishments and timely discussions on issues facing the immigrants rights movement in the Golden State.
Whether you’ve joined us before or this is your first time, your participation is critical to ensure an equitable post-pandemic recovery. With over 700 registrants last year, we are expecting this to be the biggest virtual Immigrant Day of Action to date.
Save the date for IDA 2022 and register today – we hope to see you there!
Immigrant Equity Budget
A $2.5 billion dollar investment for immigrants in California that would advance equity by addressing historic exclusions that have precluded immigrant Californians from accessing the social safety net. The Immigrant Equity budget investment will go towards:
CA ID (AB 1766, Stone): Expands California Identification card (CA ID) eligibility to all Californians, regardless of immigration status, to enable inclusion and meaningful participation in our neighborhoods, cities, and our state.
VISION Act (AB 937, Carrillo): Protects immigrants from being subject to double punishment and funnelled to ICE for deportation after they are eligible for release from state prison or local jail; prohibits the use of immigration status to deny incarcerated community members access to diversion, rehabilitative, mental health and credit earning programs.
Enhancing Safety of Sidewalk Food Vending (SB 972, Gonzalez): Modernizes the California Retail Food Code (CRFC) to reduce barriers for street vendors to obtain local health permits, bringing thousands of immigrant micro-entrepreneurs into the food economy during a time when cities across California are enacting restrictive sidewalk vending ordinances.
Alternative Plea (AB 2195, Jones-Sawyer): Creates an alternative plea for those charged with specified drug offenses, which will protect immigrants and other state residents from the draconian impact of drug convictions. Prosecutors will have the discretion to offer an alternative plea on a case-by-case basis and only at the request of the defense counsel.
With over 1,000+ participants each year from all over the state, and some of the biggest and fastest growing organizations in attendance, sponsoring Immigrant Day of Action is an amazing opportunity to directly support the immigrant rights movement in California. Your sponsorship will directly subsidize participant logistic costs and ensure a quality, sustainable civic engagement program. It’s also an investment in grassroots leadership across San Diego, Los Angeles, Inland Empire, Central Valley, Central Coast, and the Bay Area. Empower grassroots leaders and give every participant a unique civic engagement experience that will stay with them for a lifetime.
