In advance of the National School Walkout on March 14, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and National Coalition Against Censorship have teamed up to release a comic to help protect student rights. Be Heard! is a free comic by cartoonist Kai Texel that outlines best practices to help kids assert their rights to speech, protest, assembly and petition, warns about risks, and provides resources to get more help.

"Whether students choose to participate in this national movement or not, whether they walk out into the hallway or march to their Senator's office, whether they wear orange or write an op-ed for the school paper, this moment is the ultimate First Amendment lesson," said Abena Hutchful, coordinator of NCAC's Youth Free Expression Program and Kids' Right to Read Project. "We hope that teachers will engage with their students in productive ways and we want to make sure that students know what is--and is not--protected protest speech in schools."

Be Heard! can be downloaded for free from the CBLDF.
