Protest: Safety Tips & Notes
☮ Prioritize the voices of Black femmes and Trans-identified individuals. Recognize your power and privilege in emergency situations. Stick up for your communities of color.
☮ Please wear a face mask, gloves, and cover as much visible skin as possible without hindering your vision. Avoid touching your face as well as objects and surfaces that others have touched. Carry hand sanitizer and use it often, especially before or after touching anyone. Consider bringing enough to share with fellow protestors.
☮ Learn the symptoms of coronavirus. If you feel unwell, get tested as soon as possible. For more info about symptoms and testing, see coronavirus.wa.gov. Do not attend gatherings or protests if you are ill or have symptoms of Covid-19 or if you were exposed to someone who had the virus.
☮ In general, try to inform someone else about your location and whereabouts, ideally someone who is not attending the protest. Charge your phone and bring a backup battery.
☮ If you are arrested, here is a list of pro bono legal service providers.
We will continue to donate a portion of every Glasswing and Greenhouse sale to different local racial justice organizations through the month of June.
