Join the Somerville Public Library and a representative from the ACLU for a workshop on understanding your legal rights in the US.
Everyone has basic rights under the U.S. Constitution and civil rights laws. Join us at the Library to learn more about your right to be free from discrimination based on race, ethnicity, or national origin, and how the law protects you. This workshop will look at:
- What does discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin look like?
- What your rights are and how to exercise them
- What to do if you believe your rights have been violated
