About the training:
This two-day training will help lawyers, child welfare and social workers, advocates, organizers and community leaders prepare and plan for responding to immigration enforcement actions by the Department of Homeland Security. The training will focus on strengthening regional coalitions and connections with national networks. This training is open to all interested professionals and community members from Idaho and all surrounding states.
Participants will learn about the mechanics of enforcement actions and how they can assist families affected by the raid. Learn to develop and implement a solid community raid response plan to deal with detained family members, loss of family income, traumatized children and criminal and/or removal proceedings. This training will also address the urgent need for comprehensive immigration reform and effective advocacy to promote reform to policymakers and the public. CLEs and CEUs pending.
