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.
The Task Force
SLAPPs are not a new tactic, but have grown into a larger threat in our era of polarized mass communications and drastic inequality. Learn how SLAPP bullies use the courts to silence their critics, and how free speech advocates are working to protect our rights.
