City-Wide NYC Know Your Rights Trainings

CPR members are hosting FREE Know Your Rights trainings across the city this Spring to empower New Yorkers with critical information about their rights. The trainings will provide attendees with an understanding of their rights during encounters with the NYPD, ICE and FBI, and tools to stay as safe as possible during these different types of law enforcement interactions.

Empowering your community and self is essential to ending discriminatory and abusive policing in New York City and is more important than ever, as the Trump administration seeks to carry out its dangerous agenda that encourages abusive law enforcement practices.

Do you know what to do if you’re stopped on the street by the NYPD, ICE or FBI?
Do you know what to do if a law enforcement officer seeks to search or detain you?
Do you know what to expect if NYPD, ICE or the FBI shows up at your home?

This Spring, come to one of these FREE, interactive community trainings to get answers to these types of questions and LEARN YOUR RIGHTS.
