Things to Keep In Mind

 

  • Never carry false ID.
  • You make arrangements in advance with friends/family about what to do if you are arrested.
  • Memorize important phone numbers or write them on your arm. If you are arrested your personal possessions, including your cell phone, will be taken by police.
  • AVOID carrying drugs or weapons- even a pocketknife or multi-tool. If you are arrested you could face additional charges for their possession.
  • If you have an outstanding warrant or problems with your immigrations status, you may encounter problems if you are arrested during the protest.
  • If you take medication for a chronic condition, you should consider how long you can go without your medication if you are arrested. If you own a medical alert tag, wear it.
  • Carry quarters! If you are arrested, the phones are pay phones.
