Federal law states that census information is confidential.  At this legal training, AALDEF attorneys will provide:


    * a legal analysis about the strength of the confidentiality protections, including a review of compliance efforts, enforcement mechanisms, and results of Freedom of Information Requests to the government
    * legal procedures dealing with census employees who violate confidentiality
    * an explanation of the confidentiality protections in light of the Illegal Immigration Reform Act of 1996 and USA Patriot Act of 2001
    * the rights and responsibilities of community-based organizations in advising their clients to participate in the census
    * the individual benefits for undocumented immigrants to participate in the census


This training is for immigrant service providers, attorneys, and community leaders. CLE credits may be available.
