Even though you’re not yet 21, or even 18, you have constitutional rights under federal and Iowa law.

You have a wide variety of rights: student freedom of speech and expression, censorship, legal rights, LGBT rights, harassment, reproductive and medical rights, locker searches, and more.

And check out this handbook, created by the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa. It's solid guide to help young people understand their rights—and to stand up for them!
