our mission


Head and Heart.jpg

The purpose of LYRIC (Learn your Rights in Colorado) is to teach youth about their Constitutional rights. Our programming aims to bring Constitutional law to life for juveniles in schools, juvenile justice facilities, and community settings. 

Through our philosophy and curriculum LYRIC aims to enable young people to become active and knowledgeable citizens who feel empowered to exercise their rights if they are contacted by the police. LYRIC teaches a fifty-five minute “Know Your Rights” curriculum that is the perfect accompaniment to high school civics curriculum.  All LYRIC programming is taught by practicing attorneys or law students.
