CIRAC took part in several types of trainings in the community centered on understanding the lived experiences of immigrants, and legal considerations as we work to keep our neighbors safe. This includes promoting the Rapid Response Hotline--put this number in your phone now so you can make reports of ICE or other activity that would imperial our neighbors without documentation: 855-298-3271.
