Protesting for George Floyd? Know Your Rights

On March 8, 2021, jury selection will begin in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former MPD officer who killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck. We expect protests and demonstrations throughout the City of Minneapolis, and we urge protesters to know your rights before you hit the streets.


Before you protest, study your rights and have a plan. Then bookmark this page before you go, so that you can access the information here easily if you need it for yourself or others.

Have a printer at home? We have printable PDF Know Your Rights materials (including information in Spanish, Somali, and Hmong).

Use these links to print and share with others at your event.
