We have spent all week educating ourselves and listening to Black communities about how to move forward in times of injustice. A lot of people have taken action and after learning about the ways racism is rooted in the American justice system, many people did so by way of protest and riot. This post is not to tell you what action to take, how to take it, or even if you should take it, but to provide safety resources in case you do. 

  • Our second resource comes from the ACLU (The American Civil Liberties Union). They have put together a page dedicated to protestors’ rights for people who plan to organize, attend, or document a protest, or who are stopped by police while at a protest: https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/protesters-rights/

Looking for more resources? Want to make a video or post of your own about safety while protesting? Link it in the comments!
