Cleveland Summer SeriesDeputizing local police officers to act as immigration agents encourages racial profiling, strains police resources, and destroys immigrants’ trust in local law enforcement. While some police departments have succumbed to pressure from the administration to enforce federal immigration laws, others have resisted. 

Join us on August 10 to hear Lorain Police Chief Cel Rivera discuss his department’s commitment to serving and protecting all members of the Lorain community, regardless of their immigration status or documentation. Anabel Barron, a caseworker for El Centro and immigrant activist, will then speak from first-hand experience about the positive impact that this type of policing policy has on her community.
