We Know Our Rights
Designed to equip communities with practical information to protect themselves from unlawful arrests through tools that spark conversation, education and online engagement, We Know Our Rights is an important tool to help build our collective resistance across the country.
Derechos is the first installment of We Know Our Rights. Derechos, comprised of three short vignettes, depicts scenarios based upon actual encounters between immigrants and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. Filmed with a cast and crew that is 80% LatinX, the vignettes in Derechos portray tense interactions with ICE agents and illustrate how to best respond when faced with intimidating and/or threatening situations.

NLGSF works closely with coalitions and working groups to strengthen movement building and resistance in the Bay Area. Below are two programs that we are currently helping coordinate:
Immigration Court Observation Program
The Immigration Court Observation Program (ICOP) of the National Lawyers Guild San Francisco Chapter seeks to bring greater transparency and accountability to immigration court by training volunteers to attend and observe immigration court hearings and document any violations of immigrants’ due process rights.
The Mentorship Program seeks to cultivate future generations of radical and progressive lawyers and legal workers through regular programming, social gatherings and a mentor match program. The Mentor Match Program pairs new lawyers and law students seeking guidance with Guild attorney mentors looking to share their experiences and knowledge with those newer to the profession.
