Know Your Rights! Training at NYU

6:30-8:30pm, Monday, March 21st, 2011
New York University, Kimmel Center
60 Washington Square South (Room 907)

In this climate of ever-increasing surveillance and suppression of progressive movements, it’s important for all activists to protect themselves and and know their rights. Don’t miss this Farm Sanctuary and Cruelty Free NYU sponsored Know Your Rights Training led by Sparrow contributor and attorney Bina Ahmad.  Bina will discuss what’s protected under your rights to free speech, how to respond to law enforcement and FBI encounters, the basics of grand juries, your rights as an immigrant, and why understanding “material support” is vitally important. In addition to the critical information you’ll receive, we will be a screening the video trailer to Will Potter’s forthcoming book Green Is The New Red, giving away 2 free copies of the book, as well as dozens of free copies of the Center for Constitutional Rights booklet If An Agent Knocks.

Women v. The World: The Conservative Attack on Reproductive Rights

This is a climate openly opposed to the progress women have made. This is an assault on our bodies: a doctor may conscientiously object to providing an abortion, but not conscientiously object in any other medical procedure. This is an assault on our sexuality: the original draft of one federal bill sought to deny federal funds for abortions of rape victims who were not “forcibly” raped, but raped nonetheless. This is an assault to our integrity: one Georgia bill seeks to redefine victims in rape, stalking and domestic violence cases as “accusers”. This is an assault on our intelligence: women find themselves forced to go through “abortion education,” waiting 24 hours, and “thinking” deeply on their personal decision to abort because women just aren’t seen as intellectually capable of deciding what is best for their bodies, their families, and themselves without government intervention.
