Keeping Our Kids Out Of Jail: Community Discussion

August 11, 2019 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History

The Auburn Avenue Research Library in partnership with the Baton Foundation, Inc., and Watchdogs for Justice, will host a community conversation about how to keep our children out of jail.

This program will examine the ways in which Black youth, Black boys, in particular, are targeted by the criminal legal system and what parents, guardians and those who care for and love them can do to keep them out of jail.

Using skits, research and years-long experience as a criminal defense attorney, Clara King will lead an inspiring and informative conversation focused on how to keep our youth out of jail. Among the topics Ms. King will cover are: what to do when stopped by police, and how one can exercise his or her 4th, 5th and 6th Amendment Constitutional rights.
