We are ACLU lawyers. We're here to talk about policing reform, and knowing your rights when dealing with law enforcement and while protesting. AUA
Thanks for all of the great questions, Reddit! We're signing off for now, but please keep the conversation going.
Last week Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were shot to death by police officers. They became the 122nd and 123rd Black people to be killed by U.S. law enforcement this year. ACLU attorneys are here to talk about your rights when dealing with law enforcement, while protesting, and how to reform policing in the United States.
