    CV S8 Ep 3 Disappeared: The Consequences of Secret ICE Prisons in Our Communities

    CV S8 Ep 3 Disappeared: The Consequences of Secret ICE Prisons in Our Communities

    On January 19th, 2022, Antonio Acevedo-Mendoza was abducted by ICE while waiting for a ride to work outside a 7-11 in Bellingham. When a close friend of Antonio's notified C2C of his disappearance, we mobilized our supporters and spent hours trying to find him. As is usually the case, more than a day passed and we were finally able to locate Antonio in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. As is usually the case, by the time he got there, it was too late for us to help him. In this episode we discuss the horrific consequences of secret ICE prisons abducting people from our community, until we run out of words.

    Contact Patty Murray and tell her what you think about secret ICE prisons in our communities here.

    CV S8 Ep 2: Build Back Better and the Demand for an Updated Registry

    CV S8 Ep 2: Build Back Better and the Demand for an Updated Registry

    When Biden ran for president he promised major immigration reform within the first 100 days of taking office. So far nothing even close to reform is on the table. American Friends Service Committee's Policy Engagement Coordinator, Peniel Ibe, returns to the show and brings with her AFSC Colorado's program director Jennifer Piper, AFSC New Hampshire's program coordinator, Grace Kindeke, National Korean American Service & Education Consortium's policy manager Michelle Liang and immigrant justice organizer at Minkwon Center for Community Action, Diana Woojung Park. In other words, this show is packed full of super smart organizers who have a lot to say about why Build Back Better must include immigrant relief in the form of updating the registry date to today (and beyond), and what happens when we normalize the presence of border patrol and immigration enforcement in our everyday lives. Also featuring a lively playlist brought to you by our guests.

    CV S8 Ep 1 Kill the Bill: Anti Farmworker Legislation and What You Can Do About It

    CV S8 Ep 1 Kill the Bill: Anti Farmworker Legislation and What You Can Do About It

    Welcome to Season 8! The legislative session just opened in Washington State and already Republicans and Democrats have introduced a bill which would erode overtime for farmworkers, on the first working day that the new overtime law went into effect. Rosalinda Guillen, Edgar Franks, Lelo Juarez and Liz Darrow talk about why this bill must die before it gets a hearing and how you can help make that happen.

    Also in this episode: an update on flood relief, Lelo's inaugural Immigration Advisory Board meeting, and which movies we think you should add to your watch list.

    Contact Chairman of the Labor and Workforce Development Committee, Mike Sells, and tell him not to give this bill a hearing:
    mike.sells@leg.wa.gov
     (360) 786-7840

    Contact your state representatives and ask them to vote "no" on HB 1750 if it does get a hearing.

    CV S7 Ep 27: Storming the Castle - Inside a Secret ICE Prison

    Since C2C discovered an unmarked ICE prison in a business park in Ferndale earlier this year, we have been standing vigil every Monday from 12-1 pm to demand that the facility is shut down. Recently a Homeland Security sector chief reached out to us to offer a tour of the facility and "clear things up". In this episode, Sierra Green, Marciano Sanchez and Liz Darrow discuss the tour, and the ways in which things are less clear now than ever before.

    Does ICE have a secret facility in Ferndale? The city won't say, but protesters are angry

    CV S7 Ep 26: Disaster Relief: Service and Solidarity in a Flood Zone

    Beginning on November 14th, 2021, Whatcom and Skagit Counties were inundated with days of non stop rain. Many communities were devastated by "atmospheric rivers", a term we wish we weren't so familiar with. In the middle of this disaster the promotora program has been mobilizing alongside allies and volunteer crews to respond with dignity and solidarity. In this episode, Australia Tobon, Brenda Bentley, and Liz Darrow talk about what they have seen so far and what the recovery effort moving forward will look like in the context of the movement work that has already been taking place.

    When the Levee Breaks by Led Zepplin
