Tuesday's Flex Your Rights Night and the Fourth Amendment

This Tuesday, March 15th, will be the second in our monthly series “Flex Your Rights Night.”  The goal of these nights will be to focus on legal issues surrounding our rights and how to protect them as it relates to encounters with police, in the context of technology, or just in the abstract.

For this week's Flex Your Rights Night, we will be starting at 7PM with a short presentation about the history and development of the Fourth Amendment.  It reads:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The presentation will focus on the history and development of the Fourth Amendment and its application to the home.  We will follow up with a discussion session about the presentation, questions and answers, and your feedback about how we can continue on with Flex Your Rights nights in the future.

We hope to see you at Unallocated Space on Tuesday, March 15th!
