Police/ICE Entanglement Training

IDP trains advocates and community members various issues through bilingual (Spanish and English) Know-Your-Rights and Train-the-Trainers workshops. Workshops include: Don’t Get ICEd, also available as an interactive website, a guide for immigrants on how to protects your rights from deportation when dealing with police and the criminal justice system.  In recent years, IDP held regular workshops at Rikers Island with incarcerated immigrants, many of whom face a high risk of deportation because of their contact with the criminal justice system. These bilingual (Spanish and English) workshops are designed to help orient immigrants in the criminal justice system to what they face and to provide practical tips and strategies to fight deportation. We also provide a Know-Your-Rights sheet in Spanish and English about detainers through these workshops.
