Following the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri and all around the country, it’s more important than ever for all citizens to be prepared and know how to assert their constitutionally-protected rights when dealing with law enforcement.
The ACLU of Colorado, Humanists Doing Good, the Hispanic Affairs Project, and the Universalist Unitarian Congregation of Grand Valley will present a Know Your Rights Training on Saturday, October 18th at 7 pm at 536 Ouray Avenue in Grand Junction, Colorado.
The Know Your Rights Training will be taught by ACLU Speaker Kathleen Hynes, PhD and will provide information and simple steps, based on constitutional protections and criminal case law, for handling interactions with police and other forms of law enforcement. Participants in the training will learn how to keep their cool and assert their constitutional rights, if necessary, when stopped by law enforcement, as well as how to report instances of police misconduct.
For more information, contact John Krieger at the ACLU of Colorado at (720) 402-3111 or Humanists Doing Good at (970) 623-2598.
