Advocates and community members can work together to fight messages of fear and panic by helping community members learn about their rights and how to protect themselves from ICE. The Immigrant Legal Resource Center has created a variety of materials to educate the community and prepare individuals for possible encounters with immigration authorities.
For in depth information on community rights and how to prepare in case of emergencies, visit:
- A know-your-rights handout in eight languages to help families prepare for a possible interaction with ICE
- Printable red cards in eight languages to distribute to community members
- A family preparedness plan in English, Spanish, and Chinese
- A train-the-trainer toolkit on holding a Know-Your-Rights presentation in your community
Communities can also prepare themselves with these additional resources:
- Know-Your-Rights tutorial videos from the National Lawyers’ Guild in English and Spanish
- A list of Rapid Response Network phone numbers for regions throughout California
- A directory of non-profit legal services providers across the country
It is important for advocates and community members to help inform each other as we continue the fight for immigrant rights.
