Throughout our network we have had a number of questions posed by families in regards to immigration policy changes at the federal level and how that impacts individuals in the community. We have created this guide as a response to these inquiries.
If you have specific questions please feel free to reach out to DSST’s Director of Advocacy, Hillary Hoffman at email@example.com.
As always, we are committed to the emotional safety of our students.
Purposes of this guide:
- Provide information about who families can reach out to for help within the community.
- Provide general guidance on your legal rights in event of an immigration visit or raid.
- Always seek the advice of an immigration lawyer on all legal issues. This guide is not meant to provide formal legal counsel.
- Make sure that the sources you are using for updates and news are trusted and reliable sources.
DSST stands by our Gender Identity Policy and Guidelines and will continue to stand in support of our gender diverse staff, students and families.
