In 1969, the Supreme Court ruled that students do not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." Today, it's especially important for students to understand their fundamental rights as it relates to free speech, right to privacy, school discipline, and other protected freedoms.

This October's session is all about immigrants' rights. Undocumented students and allies will learn about the constitutional rights immigrants have and how undocu-students can prepare for higher education. Students will also learn how to use art to explore and build their identity through learning artivism.
No previous knowledge is necessary. Just bring your interest in civil liberties and civil rights. Pizza and RTD bus passes will be provided. This training is for students.
We look forward to seeing you there,
