Up Against the Law Legal Collective is a Philadelphia based collective of volunteers who support activists by helping them know their rights, providing Legal Observers at protests, ensuring protesters don’t get lost in the legal system during actions, and connecting them with free legal support after actions.
WE MAKE SURE YOU DON’T GET LOST
Activists call our Arrest Hotline and we track them as they go through the criminal justice system.
We connect activists with free legal support from lawyers we trust.
WE HELP YOU KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
Contact us for Know Your Rights Training and to understand how we support you during actions.
Legal Observers attend protests to monitor the behaviors of police including arrests and abuse.
WE HAVE YOUR BACK!
We can provide Legal Observers to serve as “cop watch” at your protest or event!
