Join the Bronx Defenders, a public defender nonprofit that is radically transforming how low-income people in the Bronx are defended in the justice system, for a Know Your Rights Workshop. Attendees will learn what rights they have when it comes to the justice system and will teach them how to react when their rights are under threat. Public defense attorney Angelica Lara will provide information about encountering police, stop and frisk, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), how to be a helpful bystander, and other legal advice. This event is co-sponsored by the Gallatin Black History Month Committee and the Gallatin Sophomore Class Council.
Presented as a part of Gallatin’s Black History Month programming.
