 Know Your Rights 


We provide Know Your Rights Trainings for the community! 

  • In-person or virtual

  • Standard Training is 2 hours (shorter trainings available upon request)

  • Small or large groups

  • FREE for the community (donations accepted!)

  • Trainings for your organization, classrooms, or any other group

Why Trainings? 

We provide Know Your Rights Trainings to educate the community about their rights so that everybody knows what to do when confronted by police or witnessing police interactions.

Copwatch works towards police accountability by going out on Copwatch shifts and documenting police interactions with the community. However, we know that in order to effectively impact police accountability we must have a broad-based movement in which we all play a role.

Be empowered! Know your rights!
