This training is designed to provide advocates with tools that have helped other communities carry out successful campaigns to change their city’s checkpoint and car impoundment policies. We will

- identify ways to get information on current policies in your city,
- look at how checkpoints are funded,
- review key recommendations made in other cities,
- review provisions of existing policies in other cities,
- go over existing Know Your Rights information, and
- review checkpoint observing tools and data collection strategies.
This invitation is extended to community-based organizations from diverse fields — including immigration, labor, faith, and criminal justice — interested in working change unjust vehicle impoundment policies in their communities.
