Know Your Rights Immigration Legal Workshop

Know Your Rights Immigration Legal Workshop

 Sunday, April 2nd, 2017


Free of Cost

Since its inception, Live Oak has been committed to promoting the health and well-being of individuals, couples, families and communities, with a particular dedication to people who have experienced marginalization.
In light of recent political events, we feel an increased pull to serve and protect these communities in a way that is meaningful and action-oriented.

To that end, we will be hosting a Free “Know Your Rights” legal workshop in collaboration with the National Immigrant Justice Center.

This workshop is for folks who identify with, or have friends and family in the undocumented, refugee, and/or immigrant community.

A legal expert will provide education on legal rights for immigrants and resources for low-fee or free cost services.

Multiple Dates

Saturday, January 14 12:00 – 2:00 pm

Live Oak, 1300 W. Belmont, Lower Level

Sometimes the holidays aren’t happy and can challenge our strongest coping strategies. This one-time workshop provides participants with a safe, communal space to identify vulnerabilities associated with holidays and practice creative ways of staying grounded and present through stressful times. We will identify personal and contextual factors that contribute to resilience. This workshop is open to adults, ages 18+ of all gender identities. Participants will leave the workshop with a support plan that promotes the ability to cope and thrive.

Goals of the Workshop
  1. Be in community with others who recognize that the holidays can challenge even our best coping skills.
  2. Practice expressive interventions that help us feel safe and grounded.
  3. Identify our own contextual vulnerabilities and resiliencies.
  4. Develop a support plan that promotes self-care and wellness.
