Refugee and immigrant communities face uncertainty, especially now given the current political enforcement climate in the United States. Whether you are a citizen or not, it is important to know what your constitutional rights are in the United States and how to best protect yourself and members of your community who feel threatened. This presentation and panel discussion with leading immigrant advocates and organizers in the Twin Cities will discuss the steps we all can take to safeguard our rights and be prepared to respond when help is needed.
