The workshop would teach attendees about their rights (as well as the limits of those rights) under the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution with an emphasis on safe interactions with law enforcement in various settings such as on the street and in vehicles, at concerts and festivals, and at the airport. Participants will learn how to properly invoke their constitutional rights and will learn about law enforcement techniques designed to coerce individuals into waiving their rights.
Recognized by Thomson Reuters as a “Rising Star” in Criminal Defense for five straight years (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), as well as by Denver’s 5280 Magazine as a “Top Civil Rights Lawyer”, Faisal's Denver based law practice includes civil rights and criminal defense. Before becoming an attorney, Faisal was executive and artistic director for Djoliba Don, a West African Drum and Dance Company based in South Carolina. During that time, Faisal spent several years traveling back and forth from Guinea West Africa to the US where he taught Djembe and Balafon music all around the U.S. as well as wrote music for TV Commercials and starred in a feature documentary about music in Guinea, West Africa entitled “Boloba: Strong Hands”. Today, when not fighting dirty cops, Faisal also moonlights as one of the drummers for the Eric McFadden Trio when McFadden tours through Colorado as well as serving on the ACLU Speaker’s Bureau where he regularly presents on behalf of the ACLU of Colorado.
