Join us for a discussion with Stephanie Lacambra of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Raquel Ortega of the ACLU of Northern California about Knowing Your Rights (both Physical and Digital ones). We're also hoping to be joined by someone from Orrick to discuss the implications of the recent executive orders for immigrants in tech.
The talk will cover:
- Know Your Rights! What to do if you get detained at an airport/border crossing entering the United States.
- Know Your Digital Rights! Protecting your digital identity and digital devices at the border.
- What does the Trump's executive order mean for me (even as a legal visa holder from one of the non-listed countries) and how should I prepare myself?
- How can we, the people, help those most affected?
About our speakers:
Stephanie is a long-time indigent criminal defense trial attorney and immigration defense activist who graduated from UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law in 2004. Before coming to EFF, she worked as a Deputy Federal Defender for two years at the Federal Defender’s Office of San Diego trying federal felony cases ranging from illegal entry into the US to drug and alien smuggling. Then she spent the next decade working at the San Francisco Public Defender’s office trying dozens of cases ranging from robbery to attempted murder. She continues to speak truth to power by protecting individual privacy rights from government overreach as part of the Civil Liberties Team at the EFF. She speaks conversational Spanish, basic Tagalog, and is an avid musical theater and salsa dancing enthusiast.
Raquel is an Organizer at the ACLU of Northern California focusing primarily on Immigrants’ Rights. Born and raised in Tucson, AZ Raquel first began her activism fighting against SB 1070—Arizona’s infamous “Show Me Your Papers”, anti-immigrant law. After attending Smith College and graduating with a degree in Government she moved to Washington, DC where she worked as a Field Coordinator at URGE: Unite for Reproductive and Gender Equity. During her time at URGE she worked with hundreds of young people to fight for reproductive freedom on campuses and in their communities. In 2013 Raquel co-founded the West Fund, an abortion fund in West Texas that provides gap funding for patients seeking abortion care. She currently sits on the Board acting as Development Director. In her free time, Raquel loves to salsa dance, watch sci-fi themed shows on Netflix and train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
We at PARISOMA strongly oppose the Trump administration's executive order banning immigrants from certain Muslim-majority countries! We believe it is an affront to all immigrants, regardless of nation, and is not what we, or this country, stands for. Having been a home to immigrants and faiths from all around the world, we strongly believe in and stand by, our core values of openness, diversity, and inclusiveness.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to the ACLU of Northern California and the EFF.
