know your rights Campaign

Empowering communities to fight back.

Find more information about this campaign below.

Background information

A key problem citizens have in any state is not knowing their rights. Laws can be complicated, and not everyone has the opportunity or resources to learn about what rights they have as a citizen. This often means that individuals are left feeling confused and angry after interactions with state bodies, whether that be the police, immigration enforcement officers, or social workers and teachers citing their prevent duties.

IHRC’s Know Your Rights campaign seeks to educate and inform communities about their rights. The information is designed to empower individuals to stand up and demand their rights in a constructive way. Our workshops and leaflets help people understand what powers the state possess, what rights the individual has and where they can get assistance should they need it.

All information reported to IHRC is treated in the strictest confidence and no information will be passed on to any third party without your consent.
