16feb4:00 pm5:30 pmUrgent Rally to Protect the Right to Peacefully Assemble


Event Details

Republican legislator Nick Zerwas presented bill HF 322 that would directly criminalize protesters for voicing concerns and being in the streets. This bill is a direct response to various community-led movements such as the Movement for Black Lives, Labor Movement, and the Women’s Movement that have sparked in Minnesota and nationwide.

Additionally, the bill aims to discourage our right to assemble peacefully and dissent. We refuse to remain silent and let this bill pass. We need everyone to show up and show out if willing and able. Our voices will not be censored and suppressed.

The rally will start at 4:00pm. A series of speakers from allied organizations will speak until 5:00pm. Next steps will be announced and the rally will commence at 5:30pm.

Participating organizations include:

– Black Liberation Project
– Black Lives Matter Minneapolis
– Young Muslim Collective
– MY Generation
– Socialist Alternative MN
– Socialist Students MN
– 15 Now MN
– YUIR (Youth Undoing Institutional Racism)
-Whose Diversity?
-Differences Organized (DO!)
