    Know Your Rights: Seattle Public Schools and Beyond

    Seattle Public Schools is partnering with El Centro de la Raza to hold a Know Your Rights workshop on Monday, November 4, 2019, 7 p.m., at El Centro de la Raza (historic building) 2524 16th Ave. S, Seattle, WA 98144, Room 307.

    We will be joined by partners around our community to not only educate on the protections we provide to immigrant students at school, but to also provide education and resources for all areas of your families’ lives.

    Seattle Public Schools is committed to our immigrant students and families. The district has developed strong policy to guide staff if immigration officials request student records or enter a school to conduct an enforcement action. The district also recently enhanced the organization's policy to strengthen their stance against immigration enforcement in our schools providing further protection for students. Read more about Seattle's Superintendent Procedure 4310SP.

    Seattle Public Schools believes it is up to all of us to ensure that constitutional rights and equal justice are upheld by law enforcement. It’s vital that we all are prepared and informed regarding our rights before, during, and after interacting with ICE, local police, or other authorities.

    Learn what your rights are in relation to ICE and law enforcement and what you can do to protect you and your family. Learn how to be proactive and empower yourself and others. Please join us this event for a night of education and community-building!
