In 2018, a group of nonprofit organizations created the “Protect the Protest” Task Force with the goal of ending the threat that “Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation” (SLAPPs) pose to the rights of those working in the public interest.
“Protect the Protest” is a completely not-for-profit initiative that serves public interest actors – activists, community organizers, journalists, and small media organizations.
We are here to help. Here are the ways we can provide you with support:
“Protect the Protest” provides this support at no cost. The costs of legal support vary according to each situation, but we make every attempt to help the defendants find pro bono or low-cost legal support. We cannot guarantee support for everyone who makes a request, but we will review every application carefully and respond to all submissions.
