If you’re a public school student, you don’t check your constitutional rights at the schoolhouse doors. But, whether schools can punish you for speaking out depends on when, where, and how you decide to express yourself.
That’s why it’s important that everyone — especially students and allies — learns about students’ rights.
The First Amendment protects your right to assemble and express your views through protest. However, police and other government officials are allowed to place certain narrow restrictions on the exercise of speech rights. Make sure you’re prepared by brushing up on your rights before heading out into the streets.
At CRIN, we believe in the power of nonviolent protest and action to change the world. We are inspired by movements past and present, big and small, of children and adults, who have changed or are changing society on issues from police violence to deforestation. Here we have compiled some of our favorite resources to support protest and activism. They offer practical advice and inspiration to anyone wanting to take action.
