Know your rights information and workshops available upon request
At El Centro de la Raza, we are aware that one of the most effective ways to empower and protect immigrant populations is by educating them about their rights. Therefore, El Centro de la Raza offers several trainings to inform newcomers about their rights in different vulnerable scenarios they must be presently facing and the resources and services available to them to confront them. The workshops offered include but are not limited to:
- How to interact with immigration agents in public spaces, at workplaces or at home.
- The risk of immigrant women of being victims of gender-based violence, particularly domestic and sexual violence, and the knowledge and insight to confront these risks.
- Emergency Safety Planning
- We are currently working on a workshop directed to children in which we address issues related with immigration so that they can understand the risks their undocumented relatives or people nearest to them may face and the protective measures undocumented families should undertake.
Upon request, the workshops are also available to train the staff in institutions and organizations serving immigrant communities. Please contact Adriana Ortiz at (206) 717-0089 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
