Legal Observer & Know Your Rights Training

December 21, 2014

A Training in Support of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement
Sunday, December 21, 1 p.m. - 3 p.m.
East Side Arts Alliance, 2277 International Blvd in Oakland

Come learn about police tactics and human rights obligations, what to look out for and how to best record evidence of police misconduct in support of #BlackLivesMatter demonstrations against state-sanctioned police brutality and systemic anti-black racism.

Legal observers play a crucial role monitoring and reporting on police behavior at demonstrations and other protest events by protecting and asserting civil and political rights.

The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) Legal Observer program is part of a comprehensive system of legal support designed to enable people to express their political views as fully as possible without unconstitutional disruption or interference by the police and with the fewest possible consequences from the criminal justice system.

Please review the Legal Observer Manual prior to attending the workshop.
