State of OC Report

Resilience OC, the UCI Law School Immigrant Rights Clinic and the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) released a report that outlines the state of immigration enforcement in Orange County. The report contains a first look at data about the impacts of the county’s immigration policies and places local officials’ entanglement with federal immigration enforcement efforts in the context of the county’s anti-immigrant legacy. The report is also forward-looking. It lays out a set of questions and demands for local elected officials to guide them towards a more inclusive future in which all immigrant communities are protected and treated with fairness and dignity.

I have long studied and been inspired by historical social movements; I am firmly dedicated to promoting and nurturing transformative practices.  I envision Orange County as a vital “hub for young organizers” and as a place in which “young folk can be supported in developing into transformative youth leaders.”
