Resources for Immigrants​

​Tips for Supporting Clients who have Immigrated to the US

From a November presentation by the Latino Commission on AIDS

  • Post signage offering reassurance and comfort to clients
    • For example, "Sin importar su estatus migratorio, todos son bienvendios en nuestra clinica," or "No matter your immigration status, all are welcome in our clinic."
  • Partner with local immigrant-led and serving organizations
  • Offer naturalization clinics to catalyze clients on their path to citizenship
  • Encourage local officials & city councils to adopt programs offering safety to immigrants that limit interactions with law enforcement
    • Diversion programs
    • Community IDs for people who don't qualify for State-issued IDs
