The Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) offers substantive "Know-Your-Rights Train-the-Trainer" presentations to equip community members and advocates for training others on ICE enforcement and strategies for invoking legal rights. IDP will be coming to Columbia Law School to perform such a training and will be recording the training for their website.

This presentation is for people who would like to be a resource for community members and answers questions like:

  • What rights do individuals have during an ICE raid, or during an interaction with law enforcement?
  • How can you help others invoke their rights and remain safe?
  • What tactics can immigration and law enforcement use during an arrest, investigation, or encounter?
  • How can individuals protect themselves?

Light food and snacks will be served.

The event is co-sponsored by the following organizations: The Society for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, LaLSA, Fordham's Immigration Advocacy Project, Cardozo's For Immigrants' Rights and Equality, NYU's Immigrant Rights Project, and St. John's LaLSA
