Building Real "Secure Communities" in North Carolina

“Building Real ‘Secure Communities’: Addressing the Effects of Local/Federal Cooperation in Immigration Enforcement” is a training initiative designed to equip community-based organizations in the Triangle with the skills necessary to systematically collect data documenting abuses of human rights abuses occurring under ICE ACCESS programs. The Triangle CF helped the Southern Coalition for Social Justice train these groups so the data could be shared with policy and legal advocates in order to effectively engage in public policy debate about local enforcement of immigration law.
