Since forming in 2010, StopWatch has led a wide-ranging campaign against the disproportionate use of stop and search, the increasing use of exceptional stop and search powers and the weakening of accountability mechanisms. This includes legal and policy analysis, media coverage and commentary, political advocacy, litigation, submissions to national and international organisations and community organising.

Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.'
'This is fund for the community of Black Trans women that live in Atlanta and are sex workers and/or homeless.
So far, we have been able to get 5 girls cell phones, gotten them hotel rooms during vulnerable times, and got 2 housing in a rooming house. This fund also covers food and necessities. Atlanta has almost no resources for Transgender women, so I took matters into my own hands.'

If you’re attending a PROTEST! Great! Here’s a link with some information about Protest etiquette!
If you are a white or non-black ally please let black protestors and leaders direct the chants - let’s amplify black voices!
Unless directed otherwise, refrain from violent/ aggressive chants. Also, don’t wear contact lenses; if contact lenses come into contact with tear gas, it seriously damages the eyes. If anyone has any specific advice for protests, please refer to our suggestion box.

BE SAFE. Here’s our guide on being prepared for safe protests. PLEASE READ ⬇️
1. LOOK OUT FOR THINGS THAT DON’T SEEM RIGHT. There are increasing reports and investigations that white supremacists may be infiltrating these protests, breaking windows and destroying property. If anything seems off to you, DOCUMENT IT. Always check who is organizing.
2. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS OF GRASSROOTS BLACK ORGANIZERS. They have been at this a long time and are disciplined in the ropes of community organizing and demonstration. It IS a discipline. Follow trusted leaders whose goal has been the focused pursuit of justice. If they just showed up, that’s a red flag.
3. HAVE A BUDDY. Make sure someone is keeping an eye on you and check in on them.
4. STAY SAFE and take care of each other. 💜
