Is your state considering an anti-protest bill?

A wave of laws are increasing penalties on first amendment activity, restricting types of protest, and some even indemnify motorists who strike protesters with their cars.

Our friends at the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law have been tracking these bills.

Free assembly is a cornerstone of democracy and civil society. Many of the liberties we enjoy today were earned by the marches of yesterday.

Preserving the rights of protesters protects the rights of us all. That’s why free assembly is recognized as a human right—as universal as voting or free speech—in Article 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Article 20 Network is the first human rights organization dedicated to defending and advancing peaceful assembly worldwide.
