Event description


Resilience OC, in collaboration with local OC partners, will host 9 leadership trainings that will give an overview of immigration issues impacting Orange County residents.

Key areas of the curriculum include:

  • knowing your constitutional rights, local policy & advocacy;
  • emergency family planning;
  • assistance navigating the healthcare system;
  • access and information on higher education, financial aid and the CA Dream Act;
  • latest updates on DACA and CA Driver’s Licenses;
  • analyzing campaigns to end local immigration detention and ICE collaborations with city and county governments.

The trainings will consist of readings, videos, lectures, discussions and panels. By attending one or all the sessions, participants will get a deeper understanding of the issues impacting immigrants in Orange County. Participants can build off this knowledge to work towards equity and justice in their communities, organizations, schools and workplaces. The trainings will take place on Mondays (except week 2) at Latino Health Access (450 W 4th St, Santa Ana, CA 92701) from 5pm-7:30pm. Translation in Spanish will be provided.
