Undocumented Labor and Immigrant Rights Organizer Arrested by Santa Ana Police While Protecting Her Community!

Maria Zacarias is an Undocumented Labor and Immigrant rights organizer in Santa Ana, CA in Orange County. She was copwatching and was arrested by Santa Ana Police Department for exercising her First Amendment Rights on Friday night December 5, 2014.

She is a recipient of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, however, she can still be turned over to ICE at the discretion of the Santa Ana Police Department.

She formerly used to work for Unite HERE Local 11 and is a long time immigrant rights organizer in Orange County. She has organized, marched, and contributed to major victories for the worker and undocumented community. 

WE DEMAND HER CHARGES BE IMMEDIATELY DROPPED!!! THE IMMIGRANT COMMUNITY WILL NOT ALLOW ONE OF OUR ORGANIZERS TO BE INTIMIDATED BY THE SANTA ANA POLICE DEPARTMENT OR ANY OTHER LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY THAT COLLABORATES WITH ICE.

Alongside Maria, community organizer Theresa Dang was also arrested for exersicing her constitutional rights.

Sign this Petition and CALL CHIEF ROJAS TO IMMEDIATELY DROP THE CHARGES on Maria and Theresa!

Sample Script: "Hi, I am calling to demand you drop the charges on Maria Zacarias and Theresa Dang. They are both civil rights leaders in our community and we oppose the intimidation of organizers while they protect the rights of our undocumented community! Thank you."
