IMMIGRANT RIGHTS CAMPAIGN

 

Our Immigrant Rights campaign work is a vital part of our organization’s work. Our focus is on grassroots organizing and leadership development of Latino immigrants to fight for and advance our rights. We do this through our immigrant rights campaign committee —  the body that decides on and advances the local policy fights we take on, through our alliance building and coalition work, as well as through leadership development of committee leaders. This grows our work, their leadership and power. Our policy fights at the city, county, state and national level have advanced the rights of immigrants as well as fought back against the ongoing criminalization of immigrants and entanglement of the criminal justice and immigration systems.

Rights Based Services

Another key area of our work is our Rights Based Services in which we focus on education and outreach to communities throughout Alameda and San Francisco counties. We work with schools, community centers and in multi-unit buildings to inform people of their rights and support them in being able to exercise them. Some of the workshops we offer include:

 

  • Know Your Rights When:
  • Encountering law enforcement
  • Applying for an AB60 california driver’s license
  • Applying for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)
  • Applying for DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Arrivals)
  • Exercising your rights as a tenant
