University of Oregon EVENTS!

KYR Trainer's Training
Wednesday, Feb. 23rd from 6-8pm
Knight Law School, Room 110
If you know your Constitutional Rights and ever wanted to help teach them to others, here is your chance!

Lauren Regan from the Civil Liberties Defense Center will be coming to the law school TOMORROW EVENING to teach us how to go out and give Know Your Rights trainings in the community. This will take about two hours and you should bring a computer with USB capabilities so you can save the powerpoint on your own computer. You don't have to be a law student to do this, you just have to be well informed and this is the first step.

This program focuses on interactions with police and other general rights, but we will have sessions focused on more specific areas of rights later in the semester and next year.



Thursday, 24th, @ 7:00 in the MCC (multicultural center, bottom emu)---Dabke Night: Come learn how to line/folk dance Arab Style!

The show will uncover the high costs of militarism in terms of people’s lives, emotional wellbeing, environmental contamination, carbon footprint, war profiteering, and all the ways war is made to seem normal.
