USWW Members Stand Up to Trump’s Immigration Policies
IN RESPONSE to the Trump Administration’s cruel and racist immigration policies, the members of USWW launched the Caravan Against Fear, which was designed to build momentum towards solutions to Trump’s scapegoating of immigrants and his breaking up of families with mass deportations.
The Caravan traveled across California and the southern border states. The Caravan led massive protests at federal detention facilities across California, and visited congressional offices along the way urging them to stand with immigrants.
Led by dozens of workers and activists, the Caravan built a movement to defend immigrants’ rights and keep families together. Eventually that momentum led to the passage of AB 450, which protects workers from Federal immigration raids in the workplace, and SB 54, which makes California a Sanctuary State.
