Everyone has basic rights--no matter what your status is or who is president.

The change in policies that impact immigrants has left many in fear but some basic things remain the same and that's what your rights are. Learn what they are and how to assert them.

Know Your Rights Resources:  


We partnered with RISD graduate Jason Fujikuni to design these Know Your Rights pamphlets for the community. Download them and spread them far & wide. Available in English, Spanish, & Portuguese.
