The adage “knowledge is power” is certainly true when it comes to protecting your rights. The NYCLU has an extensive library of “Know Your Rights” materials to help New Yorkers understand their rights and react effectively when their rights are under threat.


All our workshops require 90 minutes and a minimum of 20 participants. If your group is smaller than that, we recommend working with other local groups or organizations to request a training together. We cannot accommodate all workshop requests. We may share your request with a community partner who can meet your needs.
