Ok -most of you know I haven’t published on my blog in a couple years –but what better reason to revive my blog than to provide useful and important information
As we prepared for our Los Rios College Federation of Teachers workshops in support of undocumented students, we came across a number of useful documents and toolkits. I am putting them here so that others can easily access the information. I will continue to update this page as more information becomes available.
Hope you find this useful
American Federation of Teachers toolkit provides educators with information on how they can help students and their families in the event of an ICE Raid. AFT’s Toolkit: Immigrant & Refugee Children: A Guide for Educators & School Support Staff
United We Dream’s website has an EXTENSIVE library of resources and information. It includes research on DACA / Dreamers students, toolkits, know your rights, Political Education Information, etc. I highly recommend taking a look at the resources that they have compiled on this webpage.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

ILRC’s Know Your Rights & What Immigrant Families Should Know. This link provides general information on both rights and how families can prepare.
FAMILY PREPAREDNESS PLAN
Advocates are encouraging undocumented and mixed status families to be prepared in the event of an ICE raid. Here are links to the resource guide put together by the ILRC.
It is important to know that whether an individual should apply or renew DACA is done on a case-by-case basis. The one thing that advocates all seem to agree upon is that individuals who are out of status, or individuals who need to renew or apply for DACA should all consult an attorney.
