BACKGROUND:

This will include dialogue on legal rights and proper decorum when interacting with the police.

In light of the recent police officer involved shootings and use of deadly force which have caused deaths throughout the United States.  The National Bar Association created the “Know Your Rights Because It Can Save Your Life” Community Forums to educate the community on their legal rights and proper decorum when interacting with police officers.

The attendees will learn how the Fourth Amendment (Search & Seizure) of the US Constitution applies to them, whether it is legal to record police activity and how citizens should behave/respond if and when they interface with police officers.  The panel will also address racial bias in the justice system and how that often translates into violence and disparate treatment against members of minority communities.

This forum is meant for community leaders, parents, grandparents, guardians, teenagers, adults, faith leaders, peace officers and lawyers.
