“Know Your Rights” Program for Teens at Ferndale Library March 14

(EVENT page)
FERNDALE, MI – The Ferndale Library welcomes the ACLU of Michigan on Tue., Mar 14 at 5pm to host “Know Your Rights,” an interactive social justice workshop for teenagers. Teens may still be in high school and under 18 years of age, but they still have rights too, and local attorney Lisa Schmidt (Schmidt & Long PLLC) aims to emphasize the importance for young adults to gain and strengthen their awareness.

This free program is an opportunity for teens to become politically engaged with substantive social issues that impact the lives of diverse populations and communities. Schmidt, who specializes in family and juvenile law, will shed light on answers to difficult questions affecting teens of all ages, genders, identities and backgrounds.

Teens should know how their free speech rights apply to their social media posts, or what their rights are when they interact with police officers. What if a teen is also an immigrant? Can a teen refuse to be searched while at a public school? Teens have rights; teens need to know their rights.

No registration is required for this program; refreshments will be served.
