"Know Your Rights" event in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA - Local organizations here in the Tri-Cities are teaming up for the "Know Your Rights" event.

An immigration lawyer will be at the information session answering questions for those community members who are concerned.

Organizers say the purpose of the event is to inform and let the community know about their rights as immigrants. One of the organizers says they hope to ease tensions as well as help navigate people when dealing with certain situations.

"It's important for the community to know what their rights are and how to handle the events," said event organizer Jessica Monterey. "Some of the topics that we hope to go over are, obviously, your rights, if you have any encounters with ICE...we would like to give some information on family preparedness."

The information session will be tomorrow (Saturday) from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Pasco.
