Do you know what to do if you're stopped by the police?
Do your children?

Are you tired of your rights being violated?This workshop
focuses on the law "on the street" — what your rights are 
and how cops try to trick you out of them.

We want to share strategies to 'survive' police encounters.
We will also discuss the right to observe and record police
activity and how to do it as safe and effective as possible.

....It's particularly important to know your rights
at this time,because the behavior of law enforcement
toward the public has become increasingly militant
and militarized.  Law enforcement officers often
rationalize their actions as necessary tactics in
the wars on drugs or terrorism.Predictably, as these
campaigns progress, the primary casualties are people
of color, people who are poor, [people who are young],
and people who are's critical to learn
how to use the law to protect yourself- before you or
the people you care about end up in jail." 
-from book "Beat the Heat"
by activist attorney Katya Komisaruk
