We are a design team based out of Stanford University, experimenting with how we can help lay people know what their legal rights are, and how to deploy them in real life situations. We're seeking out fresh ideas for Know Your Rights -- mobilizing technology, user-centered design, and participatory approaches.

Our project

What good are rights if people don’t know what they are? And especially if they don’t know how to use them when they encounter the police, the FBI, or other government agents? We are experimenting with how Know Your Rights materials can be presented in more interactive, engaging & lively ways. Our goal is to transform how people figure out what they can & can't do when they interact with the government. On this page, you'll find the resources we've gathered together, our work creating new designs, and the prototypes we develop for potential implementation.
