We have held two Family Safety Plan Workshops to assist families prepare their essential paperwork for the possibility that a family member could get caught up in an ICE raid, leaving loved ones behind.
On March 25, 2017 we held a Workshop at ESD 105’s office in Yakima.
On April 24, 2017 we held a Workshop at Franklin Middle School in Yakima.
Community members listened to a presentation about the importance of Family Safety plans, then met with advocates who helped them prepare a Power of Attorney and help them to organize their paperwork.
When the documents were ready, each participant met with a volunteer lawyer to review their situation and to get the their Power of Attorney and other paperwork signed and notarized.
