Leaders Engage 1,000 LA County Residents in "Know Your Rights" Workshops

1703_-_SCEF_-_Know_Your_Rights_Workshops.jpgBetween January and March of 2017, SCEF-prepared leaders of One LA engaged over 1,000 LA County residents through 15 "Know Your Rights" civic academies. In partnership with Neighborhood Legal Services of LA, leaders educated participants on the the implications of recent presidential executive orders including the enforcement of immigration regulations, as well as the Muslim and Refugee Travel Ban.

"Train the Trainer" seminars have also been organized to teach institutional leaders about the civil and due process rights to which all US residents are entitled, regardless of immigration status. These sessions leverage the skills and talents of institutional leaders to further educate fellow members of congregations and schools.
