Press Release

PUEBLO - The history and political science departments at Colorado State University-Pueblo and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Colorado will host a session to help participants assert their constitutionally-protected rights when dealing with law enforcement.

The ACLU will present a free Know Your Rights Training beginning at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 20 in Library and Academic Resources Center 109.

The Know Your Rights Training will be taught by ACLU Speaker Kathleen Hynes, Ph.D. and will provide information and simple steps, based on constitutional protections and criminal case law, for handling interactions with police and other forms of law enforcement. Hynes will expose commonly believed myths and teach the realities about our constitutionally-protected rights. Participants in the training will learn how to keep their cool and assert their constitutional rights, if necessary, when stopped by law enforcement, as well as how to report instances of police misconduct.

Hynes has worked with the ACLU for more than a decade on a variety of issues. She held a faculty appointment at the University of Colorado School of Medicine for several years before starting her own research business. Her company produced and delivered high quality customized research and assistance in business development for nearly three decades. She also has held various adjunct faculty appointments.

For more information, contact History Professor Matt Harris at 719.547.2177 or matt.harris@csupueblo.edu.
