Comic Book Legal Defense Fund says students and teachers should “Know Your Rights” with this brand new, free printable resource of essential Supreme Court cases about student rights. Designed for easy printing, sharing and posting in classrooms, “Know Your Rights” is a great tool to spark classroom discussions and to provide at a glance guidance to how the law affects free expression in schools.
“Over the years we’ve seen many cases where people have bowed to censorship pressure because they weren’t aware that the law was on their side,” says CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein. “This tool gives students and teachers a road map to understand their essential rights in education, and how CBLDF is here to help if those rights are ever threatened.”
Print it, share it, and display Know Your Rights prominently. By exhibiting this guide to crucial First Amendment Supreme Court Cases, you can engage and energize others around you to stand up for intellectual freedom with you every day!
CBLDF gratefully acknowledges that “Know Your Rights!” was created with art by Matthew Loux and written with the support of legal intern Joshua Smith. Thank you!
