In 2017, ILCM opened an emergency phone resource for community members; the Minnesota Immigrant & Refugee Helpline. The Helpline goes active when an event such as an Executive Order announcement or raid occurs, and there is an influx of requests for information and legal advice from community members. When the Helpline is live community members can call in to talk with an attorney about the relevant subject at that time (i.e. Raid response information, guidance surrounding new Executive Orders or Department of Homeland Security announcements, Know Your Rights information, family preparedness information, information about detention, etc.) To assist with the Helpline Project, we ask that volunteers have an extensive background in immigration law and be prepared to answer Helpline questions without training from ILCM staff.
