In support of the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network (WAISN), the Lavender Rights Project will host two viewing parties of WAISN’s Rapid Response Webinar Training. WAISN’s Rapid Response Network is a community defense project developed to protect immigrant and refugee communities from deportation threats and to provide support during and after a community member’s arrest or detention.

Anyone can call the 24/7 hotline to report ICE activity in our state (1-844-724-3737) and receive help in real time!

Accessibility

Hosted in a loft, the viewing party will require going up and down 14 steps (w/ a handrail). Community members are also welcome to participate in the webinar on a laptop (rather than the projector screen located upstairs) in the Lavender Rights Project office.

Entrance: 36” doorway, door swings open/closed but is not automatic, no steps to enter LRP office

Restroom: Single stall gender neutral, 29” doorway, interior width of 43” between sink and wall, sink height of 31”, no bar next to toilet

Layout: Open floorplan with flexibility to move tables, chairs, desks, and anything else that may cause limited accessibility throughout the space

Scents: The office and loft are not currently scent-free, but we strongly encourage attendees not to wear perfumes or oils to accommodate our community members with fragrance sensitivities

Please contact us if you have accessibility requests and we will do our best to accommodate.


More about the Rapid Response Network

From actionnetwork.org:

When you call the Rapid Response Network:

  • An experienced dispatcher will support members of our community in asserting their rights and will dispatch trained responders to the site.

  • If needed, rapid responders will conduct legal observation and documentation that may be used to support the immigration case of the community member.

  • If a community member is detained, we connect them to immigration attorneys and activate accompaniment and deportation defense teams to provide moral support to the family.

No families in our community will have to go through this painful process alone! ANY concerned community member in Washington state can call the hotline when they:

  • suspect immigration enforcement activity in their neighborhood

  • are the target of an enforcement activity

  • have had a loved one detained by ICE


Cuando llama a la red de respuesta rápida:

• Un despachador experimentado ayudará a los miembros de nuestra comunidad a hacer valer sus derechos y enviará personal de respuesta capacitado al sitio.

• Si es necesario, los respondedores rápidos llevarán a cabo observaciones legales y documentación que puede usarse para respaldar el caso de inmigración del miembro de la comunidad.

• Si un miembro de la comunidad es detenido, lo conectamos con los abogados de inmigración y activamos los equipos de defensa de acompañamiento y deportación para brindar apoyo moral a la familia.

¡Ninguna familia en nuestra comunidad tendrá que pasar por este proceso doloroso sola!

Al aire libre

CUALQUIER miembro de la comunidad en cuestión en el estado de Washington puede llamar a la línea directa cuando:

• Sospechan de la actividad de inmigración en su vecindario

• Son el objetivo de una actividad de aplicación

• He tenido un ser querido detenido por ICE
