There’s a new law to protect immigrant students!
AB 699, also referred to as Safe Havens, or Sanctuary Schools, is a new law in CA that provides important protections for students in immigrant families. The Children’s Partnership is working with The CA Endowment, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees, Californians Together, the CA Association for Bilingual Educators, and others as ALL IN for Safe Schools Coalition with the purpose of fostering a safe and inclusive learning environment in California’s PreK-12 schools.
Our Know Your Education Rights card is a resource that will help families, educators, and students understand their rights and help them prepare in the case of an emergency or encounter with immigration enforcement.
