Know your rights. There have often been times in history where people with structural power try to deny, discourage, or threaten others for showing up and demanding their rights.
Have you been in a situation where you wondered what your rights were as a student? As an immigrant? Or in an encounter with the police? Use the ACLU’s website to learn more about the rights that you have as a young person on and off-campus.
Expression through Art. Art is a powerful form of self-expression that can help to release pent up stress, emotions or energy. It’s also an incredible vehicle for activism and community connection!
