KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: THE RED CARD
On View: September 5 to November 22, 2017
Monday to Saturday (closed Sunday) | 10 AM – 6 PM | Jewish Communal Fund Gallery | FREE and open to the public
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT |
All people in the United States, regardless of immigration status, have certain rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution. The Red Card was created by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center to help people know their rights. Manny Cantor Center proudly presents an exhibit featuring the Red Cards in a number of languages, in the hopes that those who are unaware of the protections afforded to them will become informed and empowered.
