346 youth and 45 parents received free #KnowYourRights sessions in 2020!
Project Libertad’s Know Your Rights Project empowers newcomer immigrant youth in the Greater Philadelphia Area to protect themselves, their families, and their communities. The project trains youth to exercise their legal rights and disrupt the harmful, illegal practices that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) uses to oppress immigrant communities during enforcement actions. The project also trains educators to resist ICE enforcement in their schools in solidarity with their immigrant students. This project centers the voices and experiences of immigrant youth, who participate in its development and implementation as Student Ambassadors and train their fellow students and their own teachers and administrators.
