This February, Oakland Public Library is offering a series of Know Your Rights workshops, in partnership with the ACLU of Northern California.
As our communities grapple with the uncertain future of immigration reform, the threat of a Muslim registry, a surge in bias-related crimes, and a groundswell of activism by citizens concerned about justice, safety and equity, we have a great deal to learn and do -- together.
Beginning with three workshops -- for immigrants, transgender residents and citizens exercising free speech through protest – Oakland Library and the ACLU will provide information to help you protect yourself, your family and your community.
Over the coming year, the library will continue to offer programs and resources that empower our communities to take action and advance an inclusive democracy. (Related events: Don't Fall for Fake News, Jan 25 and Feb 4 at the Main Library).
