As the LA Times reported in this compelling piece, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) is a long-standing important California that is having an increasingly national impact. CHIRLA has been on the front lines in fighting against the Trump Administration’s attacks on immigrants, providing legal defense and consultation, hosting weekly “Know your rights” workshops every Thursday at their headquarters, creating the invaluable “Rights Card” that can be downloaded below, and so much more.

Ten years ago, CHIRLA posted a “Know Your Rights” video on YouTube that became a nationwide teaching tool. Here’s their follow-up video “America; I Too”, starring Academy Award nominee Barkhad Abdi. Closed captioning is available in Spanish, Korean, and simple Chinese.
