"KNOW YOUR RIGHTS" WORKSHOP

KYRWorkshop

 

The "Know Your Rights" Workshop was held on April 1, 2017 at Masjid Bilal. StreetLaw of UK College of Law joined with CAIR-KY to present the first of many "Know Your Rights” Workshop for the Muslim community in and surrounding Lexington, Kentucky.

Professor Lollar, the faculty advisor, Larry Doucet (President, 3L), and John Ritter (Vice President, 3L), gave information regarding the rights of an individual in searches, seizures, at the border, and in airports. The StreetLaw teachers provided handouts and forms for the attendees and answered  numerous questions during the session. 

StreetLaw did an excellent job in educating the community regarding their rights. This was an important event as the political climate is shifting and members of the community have many questions regarding these issues. Through providing information and answers, StreetLaw has raised awareness about our rights for the Muslim community within and surrounding Lexington, Kentucky. This educational session was the first of many where CAIR-KY will provide an opportunity, with the help of other organizations in certain instances, for community members to be educated about their rights.
