Tell the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to Defy Trump, Defend Our County, & Expand Sanctuary

Tell our County Board of Supervisors to stand up to Trump and take action that doesn't just symbolically defend immigrants but transforms our county's policies to stop targeting us for imprisonment, risk of removal, and state violence at the hands of police and aggressive immigration agents.

Why is this important?

Donald Trump just announced executive action that threatens any locality that seeks to protect immigrant residents from his deportation machine.

What he’s trying to do is roll back the leaps forward we’ve made in recent years but we won’t let him.

In 2017, it’s the efforts to defend Black lives and protect migrant rights that make our communities safer, not Trump’s extra enforcement promises.

To keep us safe, we need to evolve our local policies to make our county a real sanctuary for all residents, not cancel them because of the president's latest actions.

That means a commitment to separating police from federal immigration enforcement AND addressing the policing that funnels Black and other residents to jail and places criminal charges on immigrant residents, making them a target for ICE agents.

Tell our county board of supervisors to stand up to Trump and take action that doesn't just symbolically defend immigrants, but transforms our county's policies to stop targeting us for imprisonment, risk of removal, and state violence at the hands of police and aggressive immigration agents.

The president's threats should be cause to embolden our county leaders, not an excuse to abandon our potential progress.

Reasons for signing

  • When the government doesn't protect the governed, we must do anything we can to protect ourselves!
  • I signed because I'm tired of seeing policies that I disagree with put upon my local community, and feeling like no one who we've voted in is doing anything about it. We voted for individuals to represent our communities interests, so I'm voicing to my local governing body what I'm concerned about to see if they do anything about it.
