It’s important that we understand the rules of engagement, our rights, and the laws as we protest. We also need to know our message, and understand how our tone, video cameras and our positive relationship with law enforcement can both push boundaries and keep us within boundaries.
We’re looking to make a stand for the people of Atlantic City and we need everyone’s support! Please join us!
