Know Your Rights Series
The Know Your Rights Series (KYRS) is a free educational tool for the public which is designed to help community members gain further understanding of your civil, social, voting, and labor rights. It is our hope that you will leave each workshop feeling empowered to take action if you are ever concerned that your rights may have been violated. FIRE would like to thank our partner, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Central Florida and our host location, Orange County Library System (OCLS) of Florida, as this collaboration has helped us to ensure that our organizations can offer this incredible series of workshops to residents of Greater Orlando. A special thanks to all of the guest speakers who have taken their valuable time to serve their Central Florida community!
The first Know Your Rights Series was done from October-December 2015 and covered:
Your Rights When Interacting With Law Enforcement
How to Take Action on Community Concerns You Care About
Your Rights as a Tenant
Understanding Immigration Rights
Your Voting Rights
