Know My Rights is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote social change through civil rights and other legal education.
We conduct programs in high schools, colleges, and communities across the nation, teaching people not just what their rights are, but also how to properly assert those rights when necessary.
It is our sincere hope that by educating people about their legal rights, they will gain not only the requisite knowledge, but also the confidence to assert those rights when needed.
With the ever increasing number of incidents of police misconduct, slumlord abuses, infringements on consumers' rights, and more, it is becoming all the more important for people to know how to protect themselves.
Knowledge is the best weapon to fight such injustice, and it is the most effective means toward positive social change.
