Workshop Name: I Know My Rights, Man.
This workshop will teach attendees about their rights (as well as the limits of those rights) under the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution with an emphasis on safe interactions with law enforcement in various settings such as on the street and in vehicles, at concerts and festivals, and at the airport. Participants will learn how to properly invoke their constitutional rights and will learn about law enforcement techniques designed to coerce individuals into waiving their rights.
