Be Informed: Know Your Rights

E-mail

Información en español

It is the mission of the Los Angeles Public Library to provide free and easy access to information, ideas, books and technology that enrich, educate and empower every individual in our city’s diverse communities.

LAPL has updated information to share with patrons regarding questions about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and immigration enforcement.

Libraries are a trusted source for information in every community. Ask your librarian for referrals to resources today! If you need assistance with translation, there are options on the Internet to translate, and a librarian can help.

Many local organizations are holding workshops. There are links below for their contact information. Call them because information on their websites has not been updated to show all of new events. 

The list of resources will be updated as we learn more, so check back frequently for the most current information.

Know Your Rights

Everyone who lives in the United States has rights under the U.S. Constitution, regardless of status. For example, you have the right to remain silent and you may refuse to speak to immigration officers.
