Monthly Community Meeting

MICOP’s monthly community meetings are a great place to get involved and meet the MICOP staff and community members. Each meeting has a theme where we share information that is relevant to the indigenous community. We discuss immigration, driver’s licenses, health and education, among other topics. We also incorporate cultural events into the yearly  meetings, including Dia de los Niños, Dia de las Madres, Dia de los Muertos and Fiesta Navideña. Food and diapers are distributed to the community at the meetings.


Volunteer opportunities include packing food bags and helping children with craft activities. We welcome your participation. To receive our latest email blasts with specific information on each meeting or if you have any questions regarding the monthly meetings, please email: micop@mixteco.org and we will add you to our list.

*Please note that all meetings are held  approximately on the third Saturday of every month. There are two monthly meeting sites every other month. One is held in El Rio (off of Alvarado St. and E. Stroube St.) and the other is held in south Oxnard (off of S. “G” St. and S. “C” St.).  You are welcome to volunteer at either site!

    With the coming of the Trump presidency, many communities and politician has expressed outrage at the policies that Trump has vowed to pursue. Unfortunately, expressions of outrage seems to be all they offer. Instead of just outrage, I am advocating that communities that want to oppose Trump’s immigration policy pass laws making it as difficult as possible for federal immigration officials to do their job. For example, communities could pass a law requiring all federal law enforcement agents be registered with the local police department. Failure to register would be a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail. They could require all fed law enforcement agents to provide their name, address, work phone, home phone, cell phone and finger prints. Failure to do so would be punishable up to 1 year in jail. They could be required to wear ankle monitors (which they would be required to pay for) while working, so the local law enforcement could know their locations when they are working. Again, with a one year jail term for failure to do so. They could be required to give 24 hours notice to local law enforcement whenever they plan to make an immigration raid, plus the names of all the law enforcement agents participating in the raid and the location to be raided. Again, with a one year jail term for failure to do so. Road block checkpoints could be set up at all intersections with access to the dwelling to be raided so local law enforcement could make sure that everyone participating in the raid is properly registered and wearing their ankle monitor. In addition, the community could pass a law making it a crime for a federal law enforcement officer to arrest someone without a warrant. Check points could be set up so that after the raid, the feds would have to prove that they had a warrant naming each person arrested. If they arrested someone without a warrant, they could be detained by local law enforcement until it could be determined that they did not violate the local law. Again, with a one year jail term for failure to do so. Social Justice and Change.
