UndocuAlly Legal Observer Training
Thursday September 7, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Our House Intercultural Center, PC 116

Want to support community members vulnerable to immagrant raids and warrant-less searches? Join the NEW Rapid Response Network hotline in Sonoma County as a "legal observer" - someone trained to                                                             document what's going on at the scene of an ICE raid. You don't interfere or intervene - you collect                                                                 information that could be crucial later if someone's rights were violated.
