Safe Haven/Sanctuary Schools

A movement is underway in California and across the nation to protect our most vulnerable students and their families from Trump's anti-immigrant executive orders. Many school and college districts have passed resolutions asserting their right to keep public education safe for all our students. This is in line with a large number of city governments that have passed similar measures. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson said, "Our schools are not and will not become an arm of the U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE).  Instead, they will remain safe places for learning and teaching for all students, regardless of immigration status."  Governor Brown and our state's legislative leaders have vowed they would do everything in their power to protect all Californians. Below are some resources.
