Join us for a discussion led by advocacy leaders of Know Your Rights Camp, an organization dedicated to advancing the liberation and wellbeing of Black and Brown communities through knowing your rights across the varied sectors of education, health, technology, and the legal system.

Through presentations and a panel talk, speakers will engage in critical dialogue about these themes and impart essential tools, knowledge and self-empowerment strategies for audiences to gain a deeper understanding of civil resources and rights across multiple facets of society.

Panelists will include representatives from Know Your Rights Camp, including Nicole Martin, Attorney and Legal Program Director of the Autopsy Initiative,  a Know Your Rights Initiative, and Dr. Roger A. Mitchell, Jr. MD FCAP, Forensic Pathologist Coordinator of the Autopsy Initiative and Kyron Loggins, Development Associate at The Hidden Genius Project, an Oakland-based organization that has led workshops at previous camps focused on technology and social change. The conversation will be moderated by Dania Jordan, Associate Curator of History at the Oakland Museum of California.

After the panel, there will be Call to Action tables with additional resources to learn more.

A Talk with Know Your Rights Camp is a part of our exhibition programming for OMCA’s Gallery of California History.
