Know Your Rights Training in Case of ICE Raids for Service Providers

WHAT: The Legal Aid Justice Center is organizing a “Know your Rights” presentation for service providers in Northern Virginia in response to a recent announcement of large-scale ICE raids in the DMV region. Although President Trump cancelled the raids hours before they were set to begin, we don’t know if it is a permanent cancellation. He has suggested in media interviews that he will reinstitute them in two weeks if Congress is unable to agree on a deal to handle the humanitarian crisis at the border.

The uncertainty created by these announcements has resulted in widespread fear among the immigrant communities that we serve. We are working to ensure that our community members and neighbors know their rights when interacting with law enforcement/ICE agents in order to combat their fear and help them ensure their rights are respected. We hope you will be able to attend this upcoming training so that you can assist us with this effort. 

We will be updating attendees on the proposed public charge rule change and the and Dream and Promise Act as well.

WHEN: Thursday, June 27th from 3:00 to 5:00 pm

WHERE: 2110 Washington Blvd. 2nd FL Arlington, VA 22204 (Syphax Education Center)
