Do you know what to do if you’re stopped by the police?

Do your children?

Are you tired of your rights being violated?

This workshop focuses on the law "on the street” — what your rights are and how cops try to trick you out of them. We want to share strategies to ‘survive’ police encounters.

SATURDAY February 23rd:

● Free

● All Ages Welcome

● Snacks, Coffee, Juice


“In the United States, far too many people are imprisoned, and far too many of the prisoners are low-income people of color.

....

It’s particularly important to know your rights at this time, because the behavior of law enforcement toward the public has become increasingly militant and militarized. Law enforcement officers often rationalize their actions as necessary tactics in the wars on drugs or terrorism. Predictably, as these campaigns progress, the primary casualties are people of color, people who are poor, and people who are activists. ....[Recent] changes in the law signal that the political climate is more accepting of ugly policing practices such as infiltration or manipulative interrogation practices. That’s why it’s critical to learn how to use the law to protect yourself- before you or the people you care about end up in jail.”

-from book “Beat the Heat”
