Students! Know Your Rights! Training (Virtual) Hosted by ACLU People Power

Students around the country are turning last week's heartbreaking school shooting in Parkland, Florida into an inspiring push for change. In addition to grieving the lives of 17 classmates, students have met with the President, spoken their minds to Members of Congress, and taken to the streets and the internet. This is an incredible example of what people power looks like – what the First Amendment feels like in practice.

In the past few days, we've heard from students, parents, and teachers asking what students' rights are – and whether schools can discipline students for speaking out.

Plans for coordinated student walkouts have been making national news and have already spurred disciplinary threats from some school administrators. That's why we think it's so important that everyone learns about their rights.

Join us on Thursday, March 1 at 8pm ET for a Students: Know Your Rights! Training
(This link will take you to our People Power website.)

You'll hear from student leaders and members of the ACLU legal team, like me, on our constitutional right to free speech and expression, and what it means for students who want to speak out. We'll also share some details on how to report any possible First Amendment violations so that our team can track what's going on around the country.

We're inspired by the leadership and courage that students across the country have shown in response to the tragic shooting at Stoneman High School.

Whether you're a young person or a parent, teacher, school staff or ally, we hope you'll join us to learn about students' rights.
