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.
