Post-Election Resource Hub

Post-Election Immigration Watch & Resource Hub

In this post election era, immigrant communities face new risks and dangers under the new administration. It’s important to remember that EVERYONE in the U.S., regardless of immigration status, has rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. In support of these rights and our belief that America’s immigrant community is an integral part of our collective past and future success, we have created this post-election resource hub to help keep individuals and communities across Los Angeles informed of important information, tools and resources provided by local officials, community based organizations, schools and the media. Visit us often as this site will be updated daily. If you or your organization has a resource it would like to share on this site please email info@afabc.org.
