Through our Eyes on ICE Project, the WITNESS U.S. team has focused on supporting directly impacted immigrant communities to use video to expose abuses by immigration enforcement and advocate for their rights through in-person trainings, resources, case studies, videos and more. We’re now looking for a legal fellow to help adapt portions of our landmark Video as Evidence Guide to a U.S. immigration specific context and to help engage with legal networks to ensure these valuable resources are reaching the right places.
“One of the best ways of fighting your deportation case is to actually have documentation of what happens when ICE shows up at your door or when they try to arrest you or pick you up”
Join us on October 15 for a conversation with journalists and activists about the impact of increased media coverage of immigration enforcement on communities across the U.S. and how to amplify the stories of immigrants.
Remember: Always use your best judgment and assess risks to yourself and those you are filming before hitting “record”.
The evening featured a screening of “We Have Rights,” a series of powerful animated short films followed by a conversation and impromptu training by our U.S. team.
In the article and accompanying video, we share practical tips for those who may be most vulnerable to these increased ICE raids and arrests, as well as practical considerations for any of us who may be witnesses to these events.
