Presentations and Workshops What are my rights? What can I do if the police pull me over? What are my rights when the Border Patrol stop me? How do I know if my rights have been violated?
Derechos Humanos “Know Your Rights” presentations and workshops raise awareness about the problems of border and law enforcement abuses, and facilitate the empowerment of community to assert their rights.
We encourage individuals to protect themselves by becoming informed of their legal rights and how to document and report law enforcement abuses. We work to raise public awareness about the problems of abuse, recruit and train volunteer legal rights “promoters” to provide ongoing rights education in their communities, and establish an advocacy network.

Know Your Rights!
NIOSH PROJECT IN YUMA Derechos Humanos is proud to be partnering with Campesinos Sin Fronteras and the UA College of Public Health in Yuma to promote human rights within Yuma County communities through the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Through this two year project, we hope to raise awareness of the health and safety issues for border communities living in militarized areas, and demand justice for those put at risk because of border policies.
Below are the Know Your Rights materials– we invite you to share these with friends and allies along the border:
