The Fresno EOC Board of Commissioners adopted a “Safe Access Resolution” at the board meeting Wednesday, March 22, 2017.
Undocumented individuals and their families are living in fear that they might not return home due to the possibility that they will be swept up by ICE agents and deported, leaving their children and family to pick up the pieces. Several risk death and persecution in their native country.
Fresno EOC has always been a champion of the disadvantaged and disenfranchised. Today specifically state that as an agency we will do our best to create a safe space. This resolution will let the community and our clients know where we stand, and empower staff to be more open and supportive of folks living in fear.
