010. Protesting in Colorado? Know Your Rights
Check out this important and timely episode on protestor rights as Law Talk Colorado news anchor Angeline Roles interviews attorney Hannah Proff, who is founder of LYRIC (Learn Your Rights In the Community), a 501c3 organization purposed with educating youth on their basic Constitutional rights under the law. From what you do and do not have to provide if asked by police at a protest (whether a minor or adult), to possible impacts when "parents step in to help," to questions on filming and posting on social media, and more. Raised "in a small Alaskan prison town," and an experienced protestor for Indigenous Peoples' rights, Proff is committed to helping "close the gap between the law and education. Your armor is your knowledge of the law," she explains. We learn, for example, in addition to writing your one-call number on your arm "old school" with a Sharpie, if you are arrested for lawfully protesting and you don't have an attorney, you can contact the National Lawyers Guild of Colorado to request legal assistance. For more information on LYRIC or to request a LYRIC program in your school, go to LYRICommunity.org. Thank you for listening!
