Anti-SLAPP Task Force: Protect the Protest
After four years of anti-SLAPP advocacy, PtP is taking on new legal and legislative arenas. Right now, the rights of protesters in the U.S. are at a critical crossroads. We are witnessing both an expansion of policies that threaten the safety of marginalized people and communities, and an uptick in repressive anti-protest measures. We formed this task force to protect our rights - and yours - to speak out, criticize, and protest peacefully. From SLAPP suits to surveillance, we are here to defend your protest. Because democracy needs dissent.
