Protecting Our Right to Protest,
Holding Police Accountable
Several states have introduced legislation which would have a chilling effect on the rights of protestors, while other states have bills in the pipeline which would increase police accountability.
Go to http://www.ourstates.org/. Click on “Policing/Protest,” then click on your state. You will find one or more legislative items listed. Select one of these items, and depending on whether the bill is a senate or house bill, contact your state senator or representative and ask them to support legislation described as “protects communities” and to oppose legislation described as “harmful.”
If your state has no active legislation, contact your state senator and representative and ask them to introduce legislation to ….. whatever you think would be good!
