CLDC is excited to announce our Spring 2019 online course!
We are offering a Spring 2019 Online Course: Bilingual Train the Trainer in Know Your Rights for the Undocumented Community in Oregon. This training is 7 weeks long. 
***Update: We have changed the structure to include a cost for this training. We will be offering the course for $65-150, sliding scale. Scholarships are available upon request.
This training will begin the week of March 11th and wrap up the week of April 22nd. Read below to find out about the time commitment!
The training will consist of one video lesson per week. There will be homework, an expectation of practice, and weekly group chats, that should in total consist of about 4-6 hours per week. Other than the weekly group chats, all the rest of the work can be done throughout the week, in whatever time you have available to do it. There will be a significant amount of practice on your own expected in order to become a CLDC trainer!
Graduations from class will be scheduled the week of April 22nd, and can be done via video chat, or in person if you are able to come to Eugene. (Video chat is fine!)
You are an ideal candidate for this training if:
– You are bilingual and very competent in both Spanish and English. The training is long, and contains legal jargon and concepts. Unfortunately at this time we cannot accommodate monolingual Spanish speakers.
– You have access to the affected community, and a clear way to reach folks with this information who need it
– You have enough time in your schedule to provide this training regularly (at least 4 times per year)
– You have experience public speaking, or at least a willingness to try and practice!
– You are a self motivated learner who can practice on your own and can get a lot out of an online learning environment
– You will need regular access to a computer for this training and the ability to video chat
Know Your Rights for the Undocumented Community is essential information that we as a community need to be sharing as much as possible in these times! We have been training English/Spanish bilingual trainers in Lane County, and are ready to expand our efforts statewide using the online class format!
The class is 10 weeks long, and covers the following topics:
– Your constitutional rights and how/when to assert them (applicable to anyone physically present in this country)
– Interacting with police and how to keep yourself safe and avoid arrest
– Interacting with ICE and how to keep yourself safe and avoid deportation
– Specific issues you might face with ICE: car stops, workplace raids, borders, detention centers
– Other immigration issues this state and country are facing: DACA, Measure 105, U Visa, VAWA, etc.
By taking this training, you will be trained in depth about these concepts, as well as given the opportunity to practice this training in both Spanish and English. (Note: We know that there are many more languages this training should be given in. At this time, Spanish and English are the only languages we have it translated to, but are open to assistance from folks who want to help translate into other languages!) You will be given detailed powerpoints in both languages that you can use as visual aids, as well as other materials that you can hand out at the trainings you put on. You will also have access to the regular updates to that information.
