Your Rights


We are team of people with and without the right documents. We used to organize a lot of events and talks in the city. And we participate in the City Rights United project, but at the moment only online. Since Covid-19 we focus on signalling, meeting on the streets and giving information. The urgency to inform people without a residence permit about their rights and where to go in Amsterdam for advice and help is very high!

Our website provides information about the rights of undocumented people and where they can go for assistance. People without a valid residence permit can and should be helped. They are citizens of Amsterdam and contribute to our city life, yet many are prevented from meeting their basic needs because of their lack of status. The city should take positive action to care for all of its citizens, whether or not they have papers, and have consideration and understanding for the vulnerable position in which many undocumented migrants live. #humanrightsinthecity

We have structured the information the following way:

Health care
Childhood and family life

Food and support
Legal assistance and other rights

Work and human trafficking
Education and adult education
Housing and shelter
Police and detention
Voluntary return to your country of origin
