North Carolina law requires drivers to have two working brake lights at all times. This leads to unnecessary police interaction during traffic stops that can lead to searches. In Durham, these stops happen three times as much to black drivers as to white drivers. Many people do not have the means or time to fix brake lights themselves, so help us pass along the word, come swing by, and let Duke Law and graduate students committed to social justice help you fix them! The clinic will be held in front of the Advanced Auto Parts Parking Lot on 2206 N. Roxboro St. in Durham (27704) on Saturday, April 6th. Training will be held on Wednesday, April 3rd in the Duke Law Parking Lot from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Sponsored by Duke Law National Lawyers Guild, Duke Law American Civil Liberties Union, and Duke University Black Graduate & Professional Students Association.
