Know Your Rights

If you have seen Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) in action, suspect ICE activity in progress, or if you or someone you know has been detained by ICE call (510) 241-4011 for rapid response and legal services.


At its meeting on January 17, Alameda City Councilmembers voted unanimously (with one member not present) to adopt a resolution that reaffirms the City of Alameda’s commitment as a Sanctuary City to the values of dignity, inclusivity, and respect for all individuals, regardless of ethnic or national origin, gender, race, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, or immigration status.


The City’s resolution is the latest action in a century-long tradition of embracing diversity and respecting the civil and human rights of its residents, while acknowledging and understanding laws at every level in the past were often at odds to progress.


Please contact the City Manager’s office at (510) 747-4714 if you have any questions.
