GEARING UP FOR THE 2016 RNC: WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING A POLITICAL CONVENTION » CLEVELAND

Political conventions often result in massive violations of civil liberties. Past conventions have seen arrests of protesters and innocent bystanders, suppression of political speech, racial profiling, police misconduct, mass surveillance, and interference with travel and association.

Join us as we gather to discuss what to expect before, during, and after the RNC. Panelists will review how the RNC will affect policing and protesting in Cleveland, as well as ways you can get involved.
