Know Your Rights

UCLA Law’s Criminal Justice Program and Immigrant Family Legal Clinic partnered to produce a set of brochures that would help immigrant families understand how to help if their loved one (adult or minor) is arrested and finds themselves going through the juvenile or criminal legal system. Through the work of the Immigrant Family Legal Clinic, it became clear that families have a number of questions, fears, and anxieties when a loved one is arrested. These brochures were created with those questions and concerns in mind, with the hope to empower families with accessible information to better understand the intersection of these two systems.

El Programa de Justicia Criminal de UCLA Law y la Clínica Legal para Familias Inmigrantes se juntaron para producir un colección de folletos que ayudaran a las familias inmigrantes a comprender cómo ayudar si su ser querido (adulto o menor) es arrestado y está pasando por el sistema legal juvenil o penal. A través del trabajo de la Clínica Legal para Familias Inmigrantes, se hizo claro que las familias tenían preguntas, temores y ansiedades cuando un ser querido fue arrestado. Estos folletos fueron creados con esas preguntas y dudas o inquetudes en mente, con la esperanza de poder empoderar a las familias con información accesible para comprender mejor la intersección de estos dos sistemas.
