What is a Sensitive Location?

On October 2011, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued an administrative memorandum entitled “Enforcement Actions at or Focused on Sensitive Locations,” which set forth the agency’s policy regarding enforcement actions in places that are recognized as sensitive locations. The policy, which remains in full force and effect, restricts enforcement actions, such as arrests, interviews and surveillance for purposes of immigration enforcement in places recognized as sensitive locations. The sensitive locations covered by the policy include, but are not limited to: schools, hospitals, places of worship, and public demonstrations such as marches, rallies or parades.

In effort to protect our visitors and the population we serve, in February 2017 as a school, El Centro de la Raza declared itself a sensitive location and adopted and implemented internal procedures that allow us to react promptly and effectively in the event of a visit by immigration agents to our premises. In addition, in recognition of the potential and capability of sensitive locations to protect and ensure the rights of immigrant populations, El Centro de la Raza has been encouraging other entities and organizations to recognize and designate themselves as sensitive locations and adopt measures that will contribute to protecting the immigrant population they serve.

We are excited to announce that Sounders FC is supporting our efforts again for The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBig event on May 9. Osvaldo “Ozzie” Alonso has selected El Centro de la Raza as his GiveBIG nonprofit of choice! Mil gracias to Ozzie Alonso for choosing to support us, and to everyone who has scheduled their donations in advance!

El Centro de la Raza was founded 46 years ago when we first envisioned a world free of oppression based on poverty, racism, sexism, sexual orientation, and discrimination of any kind that limits equal access to the resources that ensure a healthy and productive life in peace, love and harmony for all peoples and our future generations.

We encourage donors to help us uphold our vision founded 46 years ago by donating $46 to El Centro de la Raza for #GiveBIG2018. Your gift will go towards awarding ten high school seniors each the Roberto Felipe Maestas Scholarship to attend the higher education institution of their choice, and continue to fund our other youth-focused programs so that children can establish a proper foundation on which they can thrive as a productive community member.

When you give to us for GiveBig, you could be randomly selected to receive a pair of tickets to Sounders FC v. Real Salt Lake at CenturyLink Field on Saturday, May 26. The match begins at 2:00 PM. We will also select at random another donor to receive an autographed jersey from Ozzie Alonso. We will leave it to you to decide your custom message from Ozzie!
