Freedom of peaceful assembly is one of the rights Americans can exercise thanks to the First Amendment. Watch this animation to understand the recipe for a successful protest or rally.
Listen to an accompanying “Behind the Stories” podcast on Soundcloud to understand what goes into organizing a protest or rally, and how news editors decide whether a particular event is worth covering.
The podcast features interviews with representatives from the Connecticut ACLU, the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, the Women’s March, UConn PIRG and the New Britain Herald. It was hosted and produced by Adam Hushin.
