From an email:

“The ACLU of the District of Columbia partnered with Law 4 Black Lives DC and Black Lives Matter DC to create a guide to help protestors prepare for demonstrations around inauguration weekend. They are also recommending people download a mobile justice app to record any questionable conduct by law enforcement.

More Info:

The guide is available at acludc.org/demonstrate.
It includes information on permitting, the many different types of law enforcement a person can encounter in DC, suggestions for how to interact with law enforcement, and information about what to expect in the unlikely event of an arrest. The ACLU is printing 10,000 copies of the pamphlet and will make them available to the public through partner groups.
The Mobile Justice app is at: acludc.org/mobile.
Individuals who believe that they have witnessed a civil rights violation can complete an incident report and send it to the ACLU-DC for review, along with their contact information, for follow-up.”
