How to Prepare for a Protest

If you choose to attend a protest, please listen to and respect the organizers' guidelines; they are the experts. Bring signs with no sticks. Practice social distancing as much as possible once you are there (and use that hand sanitizer!) Please also do not take or post photos or videos of protesters' faces or other identifying traits, especially Black protesters; these could be used to identify protesters in the future. If you do want to take photos, use black boxes to remove identifying features and then take a screenshot of the photo. This screenshot will remove any metadata from the original photo (here's a helpful Twitter thread about this).

●      What to Wear/Bring

○      PPE (Facemask and hand sanitizer)

○      Shatter-resistant eye protection/goggles

○      Hat

○      Heat resistant gloves

○      Long sleeves

○      Comfortable, athletic shoes

○      Water (spray/squirt bottles) & potentially eye wash formula (like saline)

○      Cash/change for public transportation/pay phone

○      Backpack with snacks, first-aid supplies, fresh clothes

 

Call and Write

●      Make calls and write letters directly to Hennepin County District Attorney Mike Freeman and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey to demand the arrests and charging of the police officers involved in the death of George Floyd.

○      Call DA Freeman at (612-348-5550)

○      Mayor: 350 South 5th Street, Room 331 Minneapolis, MN 55415

■      (612-673-2100)

■      Write here

○      City Attorney’s office: 612-673-3000
