Collaborative Hosts Know Your Rights Training

Chelsea Collaborative hosted a series of “Know your rights” community meetings focusing on immigration due to the nationwide fear of ICE (Immigration) raids. Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes has clarified that in the City of Chelsea there have been no such raids to date. The rumors have created a devastating fear in our community to the point of families are not going into work, not keeping their appointments and instilled fear towards local authorities. It is for this reason, that the Chelsea Collaborative assisted our immigrant community and public officials on how to best respond to these kind of rumors of “Raids.” The purpose is to educate all on an individual's rights as an immigrant and as a human being.
