After the completion of this training, participants will have the information and tools to provide immigrant community members with a “Know-Your-Right” training and enable them to assert their rights in the health and education systems, in their interactions with law enforcement (Immigration Custom Enforcement (ICE), Customs Border Protection (CBP), and local police). After the training, the participants will have the necessary information and tools about combating hate crimes to share with community members. The participants will also be equipped with information and tools to help community members in putting together a family safety plan in the event of immigration detention or arrest.
