“Planning Effective Know Your Rights Presentations for Communities Facing Immigration Enforcement”
Tuesday, August 23, 2011
2:00-3:30 pm EDT
This webinar will train advocates on the essential elements of Know Your Rights presentations to educate immigrant communities about potential enforcement actions. In addition, it will provide practical steps that communities can take before, during and after an enforcement action. The panelists will focus on how to best present information so that immigrant communities can be prepared to effectively respond to enforcement actions resulting in detention or potential removal. The webinar will also provide attendees with resources that are appropriate for distribution during Know Your Rights presentations. Panelists include Paromita Shah, Associate Director of the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild, and Manisha Vaze, an organizer for Families for Freedom. IAN Director Natalie Sullivan will serve as the moderator. This webinar is made possible through the generous support of the Four Freedoms Fund.
