Know Your Rights: Interacting with Law Enforcement
Earlier this month, Citizens Project cohosted a training with the ACLU of Colorado called Know Your Rights- Interactions with Law Enforcement. Jessica Howard from the ACLU came down to Colorado Springs from Denver to give a training on how people can protect themselves from police harassment and dangerous interactions, in addition to how bystanders can help de-escalate and monitor police encounters. This conversation comes at a vital time in Colorado Springs, after the police murder of De’Von Bailey this summer. This conversation is only one small piece in the work our community is doing to hold police accountable, ensure justice for communities of color, change local policies, & educate ourselves so we can protect each other when our city officials fail to do so.
