ABOUT #SanctuaryLB

The Sanctuary Long Beach Coalition is a diverse group of individuals and organizations that empower migrants, immigrants, and refugees to dismantle oppressive systems while centering and building power to transform the Long Beach community for liberation.


The coalition was created in January 2017 and has strengthened the immigrant rights movement in Long Beach by:


Limiting city collaboration with ICE with the Long Beach Values Act;


Establishing the Long Beach Justice Fund, a program to provide free legal representation to Long Beach residents facing deportation regardless of their background; and


Establishing the Long Beach Community Defense Network (CDN) as a community-driven rapid response network to disrupt deportations.
