Immigration: Know Your Rights Resources

We’ve been working to organize workshops for immigrant communities in Charlotte and Greensboro about “knowing your rights” in case of immigration raids. We have expanded to include information about Powers of Attorney so that our undocumented neighbors can prepare their affairs in case of detention or deportation.  Below are some of the resources we've used in our workshops.

Immigration: Resources for Immigration Simulation

GSO-ImmigrationSimulation

Participants in an AFSC immigration simulation.

The AFSC immigration simulation is a  hands-on activity for participants to explore the roots of migration and the challenges faced by immigrants. This interactive simulation highlights the reasons rural Mexicans migrate to the US and some of the challenges they face. During the participatory activity, participants will learn about demands on life in rural Mexico, in border towns and in a US worksite, and everyone plays a role. The simulation is engaging, thought-provoking, and also fun.
