Event description
Participants will walk away understanding their legal rights--and vulnerabilities--when interacting with police in various venues

About this Event

This workshop will focus broadly on the fourth amendment and racial in/justice. It will explore how legal decisions steeped in white supremacy and anti-Blackness continue to shape our perception of lawfulness, justice and criminality; with a particular focus on the ability of police to interact with and discipline various members of society. This workshop is a blend between history, theory and practice. Participants will walk away understanding their legal rights--and vulnerabilities--when interacting with police in various venues; including car stops, "stop & frisk", search and seizures, and privacy over cars and cell phones.

This is an online workshop that will be hosted via Zoom. Please make sure that you have Zoom downloaded on your laptop or phone. We highly recommend using a laptop for the best experience. The following information will be sent out to attendees via email a few days before the workshop.

This will be the second workshop in Organeyez's pilot webinar program for progressive activists. Organeyez is on a mission to create tools and content that helps progressive activists and social justice movements be more effective. We aim to give educators, researchers, and experienced activists & organizers the ability to share their knowledge across large distances. Using technology we can figure out a sustainable way to scale frequent and accessible learning opportunities for progressive activists.
