Immigrant Rights and Services Manual: Important Information You Need to Know to Participate in the Life of New York City is essential reading for all immigrants--you, your family, your friends, or your neighbors. It was published in English in July 2010, and it's now available in Chinese and Spanish. It'll also be translated into Russian, Korean, and French, among other languages.

The manual is a resource for informing immigrants of their rights and responsibilities and for navigating government benefits and services.

The contents cover a wide range of crucial issues, such as workers' rights, education, small business services, public benefits, language access rights, deportation and detention, health care, tax returns, housing, and more.
