Mazzoni Center Legal Services, in collaboration with our friends at the ACLU of Pennsylvania, have put together a two-sided flyer, explaining the legal rights of anyone involved in a protest.
Side one of this flyer was prepared by the ACLU of PA, and outlines some basic do’s and don’ts to stay safe in an encounter with law enforcement officials.
Side two provides additional considerations for trans and gender variant protesters, prepared by our team at Mazzoni Legal Services. This includes an outline of Directive 152, which is the policy of the Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) for its officers’ interactions with transgender and gender variant citizens.
Many thanks to the ACLU of Pennsylvania for allowing us to share their guidelines.
