The 3rd Annual Seattle/NW Hip-Hop Leadership Conference Saturday, February 25, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (PT) and Urban Youth Justice will be there!
Surviving Police Profiling: Know Your Rights & Protect Yourself(2:50-4:00pm) presented by Ernest Saadiq Morris, Esq. – Director, Urban Youth Justice
Hip-Hop and police have been an ongoing problem, from racial profiling in inner cities to highly charged songs responding to it, the tension remains. This session will feature community update on Seattle police reform, and a know-your-rights workshop for youth-police interactions, particularly consent searches.
The Seattle Hip Hop community and various allies successfully came together to build community through challenging discussions and debate on the most important issues faced by our communities and youth! Urban Youth Justice supports Building Community to engage in Positive and Productive Action and salutes all Seattle/NW Hip-Hop Leadership Conference participants!
