"Due to high demand for the last training, The Reynolds Law Firm, PC is hosting another Know Your Rights training! The purpose of this training is to help you know your rights when interacting with law enforcement, whether during a stop by police or at a public demonstration (with a focus on direct actions where there is the potential for conflict between the public or activists and law enforcement). Our goal is to instill activists with the confidence to make decisions about how they will engage their activism—where is the line drawn between legal and potentially illegal protesting? What “magic words” should you say to police to invoke your rights? Armed with knowledge, activists and others can make informed choices regarding their interactions with government agents and can best protect their rights should they end up in handcuffs and in the legal system.*
This event is free and open to the public, including mature teens, up to room capacity. We will have simultaneous Spanish interpretation (through headsets) available. Thank you to Linn Benton Health Equity Alliance for helping us arrange this service.
