The focus was on learning about current immigration policies,
knowing your civil rights with Homeland Security, with local
police, and at the airport. Panelists helped identify resources
for Hate Crimes and Discrimination. After the panel presentation
free 1:1 legal consultations were available. The ACLU gave out
a free wallet-size guide that gave short answers to the many
questions arising about how to know your rights. The cards are
available in many languages. They were so popular
that they ran out of them.

With over 90 attendees, there were many of our LWVFNUC 
members who were present including our Co-Presidents and 
Program Committee Chairpersons.
