DAY OF GUIDELINES

CENTER AND AMPLIFY BLACK QUEER/TRANS FOLKS 

 Be mindful of your presence if you are non-Black + cis. If you are white + cis, place yourself on the perimeter, and use your voice to amplify, not to lead.


 MIND THE SPACE 

Please respect personal space and maintain a distance with masks on.


 DO NOT TALK TO POLICE 

 We will have lawyers and police liaisons on the ground should the need arise.


 LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER 

 Come with a buddy, check in on anyone who may need help. 


 ACCESS 

Brooklyn Museum plaza is wheelchair accessible. Those that need seating should arrive early. We will be marching approximately 2 miles to another wheelchair accessible location. An ASL interpreter will be present.We understand and recognize that the Brooklyn Museum has a history of violence against our community. This is not an event in collaboration with or sanctioned by the Brooklyn Museum as their plaza is a public space. We invite the Brooklyn Museum to join our cause by making best efforts to mitigate police presence and make their bathrooms available to attendees who need them without fear or difficulty.


 In the spirit of the movement, this event is in no part in collaboration with police, nor will we seek a permit.


 In case of arrest, call Good Call at 1-833-3-GOODCALL for help finding a free lawyer.


If you experience police violence or harassment during this action and need support, the Anti-Violence Project is here with counselors ready to answer your call at 212-714-1141.
