The Micah Center for Social Justice will host “Know Your Rights,” a Zoom clinic presented by the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, on Tuesday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m. A flagship offering of the lawyers guild, the program focuses on people’s rights regarding police stop and search policies and is designed to both educate and empower people, regardless of their immigration status.
If you are alone on a dark road and the police pull up behind you with their lights on, what should you do? What is safe and what are your rights? These questions and others will be answered during the Zoom clinic.
The Micah Center, founded in 2020, brings forth social topics for education, awareness and to promote meaningful discussion that could lead to meaningful change. Begun as an initiative of St. Stephen Lutheran Church, Marlborough, the center has also attracted community members as individuals and from other organizations. Micah Center volunteers believe the Know Your Rights clinic can provide a starting point for conversation and understanding.
