Know Your Rights training with National Lawyers Guild

For the last nine months, Chicago has been in the streets every week in solidarity with the people of Palestine. This summer, our city will host the Democratic National Convention which will be met with massive protests. Now is the perfect time to learn or brush up on your rights during a protest. Join NLG Chicago at 7 pm on Thursday, July 11 at Pilsen Community Books for a Know Your Rights training for Chicago activists. This training will be focused on making sure Chicago activists know their rights during police encounters, common charges associated with protesting and what to expect if they are arrested. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of how to be prepared for hitting the streets and what to do if someone they’re with is taken into police custody.
