  • We will do our best to have observers, if asked in advance, on the ground.
  • In addition, if due to timing, we cannot be at your action, we will talk you through legal observing.
  • We can and will provide legal support/follow up for all arrested protesters.
  • This includes finding out where folks arrested have been taken, if they are taken and held for more than one hour.
  • We will find out if they will have a bail hearing do our best to let you know where and when the hearing will be.
  • We will contact lawyers who have already reached out to us stating that anyone arrested at protests during this time will be represented pro bono.
  • We will meet with all arrestees to explain the process, including how to fight civil citations, if issued.
