In less than a month, Charlotte will be at the center of global attention, as thousands of journalists, political activists, and protesters descend on the city for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. How will policies and laws put into place for the Convention impact the rights of the reporters, demonstrators, and the citizens of North Carolina? And what can we do to ensure that our First Amendment rights and other freedoms are being upheld?

Join us online on Monday, August 20, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a free know-your-rights webinar, “2012 DNC in Charlotte: What You Need to Know.” We’ll discuss the rights of demonstrators and photographers, the permitting process and other rules and restrictions passed for the event, and take questions from the webinar attendees on how you can stand up for your rights.
