Our Vision: No one stands alone in our community.
Our Mission: The San Diego Rapid Response Network (SDRRN) is an interconnected system of organizations and individuals working together to respond to dehumanizing immigration enforcement activities, including checkpoints, raids, arrests, and harassment, occurring in San Diego County. We maintain a 24-hour hotline to document such occurrences, provide emergency assistance, and connect affected people with resources to social services and legal defense. We also provide asylum seeker shelter and transition services including critical case management, travel assistance, nutrition services, medical screenings, legal assistance, and financial support for asylum seekers in need of respite shelter.
Our History: The San Diego Rapid Response Network (SDRRN) was launched in December 2017 by the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties (ACLU), the San Diego Organizing Project (SDOP), and SEIU Local 221 in partnership with a coalition of more than 40 immigrant rights and social service organizations, attorneys, and faith and community leaders with the goal of minimizing the impact of enforcement activity, family separation, and deportation on immigrants and their families in the San Diego border region.
Since its inception, the SDRRN partners have worked tirelessly to fulfill the SDRRN vision: No one stands alone in our community. Through the SDRRN’s collective efforts, thousands of immigrants and asylum seekers have found refuge and support through an infrastructure that is committed to ensuring that every immigrant living in or arriving in San Diego is treated with dignity, compassion, and respect.
