Human Rights Day of Action Highlights

2017

San Diego’s interfaith community, civil and human rights groups, labor and social service organizations, and compassionate individuals joined together to affirm our commitment to make San Diego a safe haven for refugees and immigrants from around the world, especially those fleeing a crisis of violence, natural disaster, and persecution.

As a border community greatly enriched by immigrants and refugees, we affirmed the dignity and humanity of all of our families, including torture survivors, refugees, immigrants, people with special medical needs, women who head households, unsheltered people, and children, all of whom deserve to have their voices heard and to have a government that is responsive to their needs.

Refugees and immigrants in San Diego are at the forefront of the regional housing crisis, often forced to live in substandard conditions, fighting slumlords and living as ‘hidden homeless,’ crowding homes to ensure families and friends have a place to stay. The #RightToARoof campaign will focus on improving housing for all, especially our most vulnerable.
