           Contact Your Legislators

When calling Members of Congress (MOCs) begin by thanking them for their service. Please be respectful, to the point, brief and honest. When appropriate refer to a bill number as well as the issue. Only call your MOCs, and be sure to let  them know that you are a constituent, and tell them your zip code. Express your support for the issue and your hope they too will support it. Only bring up one issue per call. End your call with a polite thank you!


ACLU List of Rights and Safeguards For Protesters

As you come out to protest, here's what our video notes to keep in mind:

  1. The right to protest is a fundamental human right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the First Amendment.

  2. If you get stopped, ask if you are free to go. If the police say yes, calmly walk away.

  3. You have the right to record. The right to protest includes the right to record, including recording police doing their jobs.

  4. The police can order people to stop interfering with legitimate police operations, but video recording from a safe distance is not interfering.

  5. If you get stopped, police cannot take or confiscate any videos or photos without a warrant.

  6. If you are videotaping, keep in mind in some states, the audio is treated differently than the images. But images and video images are always fully protected by the First Amendment.

  7. The police's main job in a protest is to protect your right to protest and to de-escalate any threat of violence.

  8. If you get arrested, don't say anything. Ask for a lawyer immediately. Do not sign anything and do not agree to anything without an attorney present.

  9. If you get arrested, demand your right to a local phone call. If you call a lawyer for legal advice, law enforcement is not allowed to listen.

  10. Police cannot delete data from your device under any circumstances.
