Sensitive Locations

We can help you become a Sensitive Location today

In effort to protect our visitors and the population we serve, in February 2017 as a school, El Centro de la Raza declared itself a sensitive location and adopted and implemented internal procedures that allow us to react promptly and effectively in the event of a visit by immigration agents to our premises. In addition, in recognition of the potential and capability of sensitive locations to protect and ensure the rights of immigrant populations, El Centro de la Raza has been encouraging other entities and organizations to recognize and designate themselves as sensitive locations and adopt measures that will contribute to protecting the immigrant population they serve.

In the framework of these efforts, El Centro de la Raza is providing potential sensitive locations with relevant information on how to take advantage of this status to provide the immigrant population with support and protection. With this objective in mind, El Centro de la Raza has created a set of resources that help and guide potential sensitive locations better serve their communities. These resources include the creation of a common logo to identify sensitive locations in King County and the greater Seattle area, information sessions, technical assistance on viable and effective measures to protect vulnerable immigrant populations and a toolkit.
