ACLU launches Rights Guideline

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Hawaii, launches its Youth Rights Guide prototype in an attempt to raise awareness of the rights of public and charter school students under the age of 18.

Spokesperson Holly Berlin a Legal and Legislative Assistant for ACLU, held a press release at UH Manoa Campus Center during the Journalism Day being held there. The release of the guide is to prompt students from Hawaii schools to give their feedback and participate in taking action to exercise their freedom of speech, religion and equality. The guide is also to lead Hawaii’s youth to acknowledge the protection of the U.S. and Hawaii State Constitutions.


Berlin is a Law student born in Waialua and a Kahuku High School Alumna holding a degree in Sociology from Columbia University. “I wish I had this guide when I was in school” Berlin said during the release.

ACLU is working on to add more sections to the guide and a printed version as a reference. A public education presentation for schools and libraries, and involvement in private schools is being considered. 

The release version of the guide can be found at https:// acluhi.org/the-rights-of-students-in-hawaii-public-and-charter-schools/ or http://bit.ly/1pV6lGi
