As Black Lives Matter protests continue nationwide, it can still be difficult to navigate our individual roles in an inherently racist society that is drastically transforming. This database contains educational resources for allies, civic engagement guides, petitions, protester safety and legal aid, and more.

PROTEST SAFETY

& LEGAL AID

The First Amendment protects your right to assemble and express your views through protest.

 

However, police and other government officials are allowed to place certain narrow restrictions on the exercise of speech rights. Make sure you’re prepared by brushing up on your rights before heading out into the streets.

Protesting during the COVID-19 Pandemic requires extra care and preparation. 

 

As protesters take to the streets in dozens of US cities to mourn the death of George Floyd, resist police violence, and demand justice, many are wondering whether it’s possible to participate safely with the Covid-19 pandemic still spreading and taking lives.
