Detroit, MI ( — Social activist, author, and bail bonds owner Krystal Banks, for the first time ever, offers her curriculum-based program, Sticky Situations – Understanding the Law and Life Skills, as a way to help people push through the troubling times we are facing as a nation. In today’s climate, where anti-police sentiment is at the forefront of most of social media, it is essential that people understand the variances of the law, so that no more laws are broken or any more unnecessary lives are taken.

The Sticky Situation curriculum is currently being incorporated into schools and colleges, as it meets several of the Common Core Standards required by educational guidelines. The program features several in-person and virtual workshops and seminars, trivia card games, and an app component that allows users unfettered access to U.S. criminal justice laws and citizen’s rights.

The Sticky Situation curriculum covers a variety of topics including anger management, insurance law, financial/economic literacy, and entrepreneurship. These subjects, along with many more, are summarized under three branches: life skills, critical thinking skills, and goal-setting skills. This curriculum is the only program in the country that combines all three skill sets under one umbrella.

One critically important part of the program is the instruction that outlines how to handle interaction with law enforcement. This is the key component of what the program’s creator, Krystal Banks believes will help people be more responsible with their actions.

“The one thing that is missing in today’s society is the notion of accountability,” said Banks. “That goes for law enforcement and the people who are battling for their rights every day. No one wants to take accountability for their actions. With issues of racism being rampant, I created a system that explains why being accountable for your actions can give you a brighter future, and I created it in a fun and entertaining manner. We can all learn to work together to make our society a better place to live.”

Krystal has been invited to speak and teach about her program all over the country, as the program itself has become one of the most requested seminars at educational organizations across the nation. Each presentation lasts between one and three hours and can be attended by attendees of any age.
