Our world changed overnight. Now what do we do?

On November 9, we woke up in a new world - one where a man who spent months publicly attacking immigrants was suddenly in the highest position of power. We were afraid, confused, sad. How could this be true? That morning alone there were 40 families with fear in their eyes outside of the Chelsea Collaborative before we even opened.

Know Your Rights! Protect you and your family during immigration raids

It is important for everyone to understand you do have rights when confronted or questioned by police or other officials. You have the right to remain silent, to request to speak to a lawyer, and to make a phone call if arrested. If the police or immigration come to your door, they must have a warrant and you have the right to not open the door until you see the warrant with your name on it.
