17000 Arnold Drive, Sonoma, CA 95476 At the first event, held February 28, Lucy Benz-Rogers, an immigration attorney from the International Institute of the Bay Area, thoughtfully explained immigration law and encouraged people to understand their rights regarding the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Also in attendance were Rebecca Hermosillo, a representative from Congressman Mike Thompson’s office, and Sonoma Chief of Police Bret Sackett. The second event, held March 28, highlighted workplace rights. Experts from the National Labor Relations Board shared general information about unions, wage claims and workers’ rights that belong to all workers regardless of their status. Hanna Coordinator Jaime Beltran focused on family well-being in the face of deportation-related stress at our third event on May 5. Jaime shared ways to talk with children about the deportation threat and what steps families can take to increase their sense of safety. “Collaborating with the community is a critical role of the Hanna Institute, and so it was natural for Hanna’s team to co-lead the Know Your Rights series,” says Mary Kelly Persyn, Director of the Hanna Institute. “This series is an important bridge to our community and reflects the diversity of the boys at Hanna Boys Center. These events also help our community confront and cope with trauma.” Look for more community events and outreach from the Institute, including the Professional Networking Breakfast Series featuring Judge Troy Nunley on September 14.
