ACLU of Northern CA

Without any trial or due process, hundreds of West Sacramento residents of a predominantly Latino neighborhood were served a permanent "gang" injunction. In addition to challenging this injunction in a separate case, California v. Broderick Boys, the ACLU Foundation of Northern California is representing one such resident, a 28-year-old father, who was served by the injunction that imposes a lifetime 10 P.M. curfew, among other restrictions.

The ACLU Foundation of Northern California is seeks a court order establishing that the Velazquez is not an active gang member, and thus the injunction must be vacated as to him and his name must be purged from the police gang files.
