Know Your Rights Training for Protestors



    “Have you ever wondered what your rights are when engaging in a public protest? Can they arrest you if you block the street? What about the sidewalk? What should or shouldn’t I say if I’m arrested? Do I have to tell police my name? Do I have to show my ID? What should I do if they ask whether I’m a U.S. citizen? Do I have to get permission to hold a protest? They told me I had to buy insurance and hire security. Can they do that?

    Learn the answers to these and other questions at the next Know Your Rights Training presented by the National Lawyers Guild of Southern Arizona, and cosponsored by YWCA Southern Arizona- Frances McClelland Community Center, Tucson Showing Up for Racial Justice – SURJ and the Democratic Socialists of America.”
