Our CCR students had workshops about immigrants’ rights, also known as KYR(Know Your Rights) workshops presented by our new partner, Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement. They learned about their rights as immigrants, as well as updated changes to immigration policy and the social services available to them. With the current COVID surge, we shifted our workshop location from in-person to online temporarily because we should know about our rights no matter what situations we are in!

We’re baaaaaaaack! Our teachers and staff were excited to start up our evening classes (6:30-9:00pm) again!
We thank our students who come straight from work and commit to studying with us through June.
