Know Your Rights!

Offered by: National Archives
Program Description:
Participants will examine three historical case studies in preparation for a roundtable discussion with a facilitator from the National Archives. Each case study will serve as an example of how the government has made decisions that violated the Bill of Rights and how everyday citizens took action to hold the government accountable and retain their rights. During the roundtable discussion, participants will use their case studies to answer questions such as Is it ever okay for the government to overstep the Bill of Rights? and How can a piece of parchment safeguard individual rights?
