Local Funding Initiatives

Beginning in 2017 ImmDef with the support of the County & City of Los Angeles, the City of Santa Ana, and later the City of Long Beach has launched Locally Funded Initiatives to support our immigrant communities and defend them against ICE attacks. The latter of these two projects are done in conjunction with the VERA Institute of Justices Safe Cities Initiative, a nationwide network of localities investing in their communities by defending them against ICE.  These initiatives were launched following the 2016 election due to the organizing of community-based organizations and activists who saw the need for cities and counties to step up.

Los Angeles Justice Fund

In 2017 the Los Angeles Fund was created as a two-year grant through collaborative funds sourced by LA City, LA County, and Philanthropic partners such as the California Community Foundation and the Weingart Foundation. In 2019 the fund was due for a renewal however there has been no motion for the City or County to include it in their budgets. ImmDef is working collaboratively with other groups funded for removal defense through this grant to advocate for the funding to be reconsidered. We are thankful to the bridge funding received from the philanthropic partners.
