Teens: Know Your Rights

flyer for Teens Take Action Somerville event

Teens Take Action: Somerville is a new coalition of young people and youth workers from around the city who are committed to taking action in Somerville and beyond. Sponsored by the Somerville Youth Workers Network, we are inviting teens to get up and get active through a series of workshops that will give you the tools you need to make real, sustainable change.

Get to know other teens that care about the issues you do, and get organized to fight back! Plus, did we mention there's FREE PIZZA?

Join us on Wednesday, February 22nd from 3:30-5:30 at Groundwork Somerville (24 Park Street), and learn from experts from the ACLU Massachusetts (American Civil Liberties Union) about:

-what your rights are if you (or a friend, family member, or neighbor) are stopped by law enforcement
-how to protect yourself and assert your rights when interacting with law enforcement
-how to file a report if your rights are threatened
-how to stand up for the rights of others, and how to send a message to Congress that our rights must be protected!

This event is free and all are welcome!
