Know Your Rights

Monday, October 4, 2021 at 7 p.m.  with Rebecca Kozak of the National Lawyers Guild

Learn about your rights and effective tactics if you have an encounter with the police!

The National Lawyers Guild’s Know Your Rights: Stop and Search clinic is part lecture, part Q&A, covering First Amendment rights specifically relating to interactions with the police, Fourth Amendment rights, FBI questioning, police encounters with immigrants, and more.  It is meant for community members, immigrants, non-citizens, students, and those targeted by law enforcement  or living in over-policed communities—anyone who wants to  know their rights when interacting with law enforcement. The workshop is participant oriented and meant to provide the most essential tools when interacting with law enforcement. 

Run by an attorney who has experience representing protesters, it offers an opportunity to ask about your own approaches to activism.

Rebecca Kozak has been a public defender with the Committee for Public Counsel
Services for the past nine years, practicing out of the Chelsea District Court, Dorchester, Boston Municipal Court, and Suffolk County Superior Court. Rebecca graduated from Northeastern University School of Law.
