On Wednesday, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law will present a Community Forum: Know Your Rights Training at the Muskogee Civic Center. This event is open to all members of the community.

Modern-day debtors’ prisons result from the unconstitutional jailing of people who are unable to pay court fines, fees, and costs. Many Oklahomans are at serious risk of being jailed without inquiry into their ability to pay, and are often denied the right to counsel and basic due process protections. Learn about these rights and gain tips for interacting with the judicial and educational systems.

Members of both the Criminal Justice Project and Educational Opportunities Project of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law will be present, and a member of the Mexican Consulate will be available for additional questions.

The event is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Muskogee Civic Center, 425 Boston St.

Light snacks and refreshment will be provided.
