The Immigrant’s Rights Working Group hosted public legal education workshops to educate NGOs and new immigrants about their legal rights, drafted a legal policy brief for the Toronto Police Services Board advocating for the implementation of a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy whereby policy offers would not inquire or report on a witness’s immigration status. The brief will be presented to the Police Board in the summer of 2008.
