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 an Emergency Immigration Enforcement hotline for community members to report any immigration-related emergencies and to document such occurrences. 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.
About The Emergency Immigration Enforcement Hotline
The San Diego Rapid Response Network (SDRRN) provides an Emergency Immigration Enforcement Hotline for San Diego community members to report any ongoing immigration emergencies such as checkpoints, raids, arrests, and harassment. The purpose of the hotline is to document such incidents, provide emergency assistance, and connect affected individuals with resources to social services and legal defense.
Our emergency hotline hours of operation are Monday–Friday from 8:30am–5:00pm. We do not take live calls. Please leave a detailed message and we will review your report and return your call as soon as possible. Our team is dedicated to addressing the immediate concerns and needs of our community. Calls are routinely monitored during non-business hours (weekends included) and returned as appropriate for immigration emergencies only.
