How to Protest Safely (source: https://www.nrdc.org/stories/how-protest-safely)

  • Research any demonstrations you plan to attend
  • Buddy up
  • Pack a bag
  • Be mindful of your phone settings
    • The Electronic Frontier Foundation’s guide to protesting suggests encrypting your phone and turning it on airplane mode before demonstrating, since phones can leave behind bread crumbs of data that leave you vulnerable.
  • Dress for Anonymity and Safety
  • Know your rights
  • Follow the lead of organizers
  • Stay vigilant
  • Prepare to encounter law enforcement
  • Protect fellow protesters’ privacy

The host of this grief space, Allie Fridstein, is a licensed mental health counselor in Columbus, OH, USA who specializes in existential therapy and authenticity work. That being said, this is not a formal therapy group but rather a support group for those who want community in sharing and holding their collective grief.

All adults are welcome. As humans, we can empathize with the pain we are collectively suffering together. The grief we feel for our Jewish, Congolese, Sudanese, and Lebanese siblings shall be honored here too. If you are looking for a space to unpack your collective grief, you belong and are welcome here.

This space will be available via Zoom on Mondays from 8-9pm EST (5-6pm PST), RSVP not required. SIGN UP.
