Together, SEIU 721 members have spent countless hours working alongside residents and community groups to make Oxnard a Sanctuary City. On July 25, the Oxnard City Council voted to make our demand a reality!

Now more than ever before, it’s critical that our elected leaders stand up for all working families. The Oxnard City Council did the right thing.

The City Council’s YES vote represents a key step forward, but there’s still more work to be done. Across the country, a surge in immigration enforcement actions and anti-immigrant rhetoric have forced too many working families into the shadows. When anyone in our community is afraid to use emergency services like Fire, Police, social services, or hospitals, then we are all vulnerable.

That’s why we are continuing this important fight by helping legal permanent residents complete their citizenship paperwork, N-400 forms, at the next Citizenship Fair on Sunday, July 30 from 9am-3pm at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, Oxnard Room, 800 Hobson Way, Oxnard, CA 93030.

This Citizenship Fair will empower our communities’ legal permanent residents to become full citizens so they can finally have the right to vote and elect strong candidates who will support working families.

If you have family, friends, or co-workers who need help with their N-400 citizenship paperwork please contact Akemy Bon-Flores at akemy.bon-flores@seiu721.org with their name and phone number.

We only have a limited number of spots for our Citizenship Fair, and we’re filling up quick! If you are interested in attending the Citizenship Fair, please contact us today!
