How to Give a Know Your Rights Presentation for Immigrants
Wednesday March 29, 2017 1pm – 3pm ET
This presentation is for people giving trainings to clients or community members who want to know:
- What rights do individuals have during an ICE raid, when questioned or searched at the airport, or during an interaction with immigration or law enforcement at home or in public?
- How can you help your clients, community members, and others invoke their rights and remain safe?
- What are the tactics that immigration and federal law enforcement use during an arrest,investigation or encounter and how can individuals protect themselves?
You can attend live in person (space limited) at CUNY Law (2 Court Square, Long Island City, Queens). The workshop will also be streamed live online (sign up in advance to get access to materials and link to be sent out immediately before the event).
Who will give the workshop:
The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is a non-profit legal and educational organization committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.
The Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility (CLEAR) project is housed at the City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law. CLEAR primarily aims to address the unmet legal needs of Muslim, Arab, South Asian, and other communities in the New York City area that are particularly affected by national security and counterterrorism policies and practices.
The Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) works to secure fairness and justice for immigrants in the United States. IDP’s mission is to transform a racially biased criminal legal system that violates basic human rights and an immigration system that tears hundreds of thousands of immigrants with convictions each year from their homes, their families, and their communities.
