Get Legal Observers for Your Demonstration

Legal observing programs are at least 30 years old. Their purpose is to help people exercise their rights to speak, assemble, and petition the government for redress of grievances. There are instances where police, protesters (or counter demonstrators) engage in disruptive behavior.  Legal observers are on the scene to record what happens. Often the presence of observers can have a calming influence on the situation, as some police and protesters are reluctant to be observed engaging in disruption.

If you are interested in having ACLU legal observers attend your demonstration or rally contact:
