Sample Key Campaign Messages
1. Community impact: separates families
2. Public Safety: creates mistrust within the
community, criminalizes immigrant communities,
endangers victims of crimes
3. Fiscal Impact: Drains resources & no reimbursement
4. Faith Perspective: Respect the dignity & humanity
of all residents
5. Racial Profiling: Assumes the CJS is fair when we
know there are instances of racial biases
6. Due Process: Undermines Constitutional right to

Responding to Oppositional
Messaging
Faith Messaging on
Secure Communities
Central to all faith traditions are the principles of
the common good, human dignity and love for
one’s neighbor.
Deuteronomy 10:18-19
He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves
the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and
clothing. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you
yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.
Prophetic Witness
The tradition of prophetic witness is an important part of
our faith traditions wherein leaders took a stance against the
marginalization and oppression of the poor and were willing
to speak truth power.
Proverbs 31:9
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Isaiah 61:1
"The Spirit of the LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach
good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted, to
proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the
prisoners."
