In light of recent protests against racial inequality and oppression, the Immigrant Legal Center, the Lincoln Commission on Human Rights and the ACLU of Nebraska have put together a Know Your Rights one-pager for immigrants on the impact that protesting may have on your immigration status.
The right to protest is guranteed by the First Amendment regardless of immigration status. If protesting, you have the right to:
- Peacefully assemble
- Photograph or videotape the police
- Protest in public places
The Know Your Rights guide is intended to give you the tools and knowledge to participate in any political protests, marches or demonstrations.
For more information check out the Immigrant Protester Guide's available in English and Spanish.
