Be Informed

Be Informed is one of four modules in LIRS’s Be Not Afraid project. The project is a set of tools designed to assist congregations serving immigrants as they seek to reduce fear and create welcoming communities through education and advocacy. The tools in the Be Informed module help immigrants understand their rights and plan for emergencies.

LIRS would love to hear how you have used the Be Not Afraid materials in your community. Please contact us at to share your stories or request further information about the project.
