ACTION PREPARATION

Before you go out:

  • Find a buddy or small trusted group and agree on level of risk together
  • Agree on risk of covid exposure as well as risk of arrest; affinity groups commonly use a red/yellow/green system
  • Make aftercare plans for moderate or high risk activity regardless; police and uprising spaces are unpredictable
  • Tell someone you’re going out & make a plan to check in regularly
  • Make additional plans to check in afterwards, doesn’t have to be the same person
  • Give this form to a trust friend who won’t be on the frontlines
  • For larger groups or organizations, collect forms prior to attendance and destroy afterwards every time (builds habit/protects information)
  • BIPOC PROTESTERS: Email to upagainstthelawlc@riseup.net 
  • YT allies: Email to
  • In permanent marker, write the Jail Support # 484-758-0388 on your body!
  • Write it somewhere it can’t be easily wiped off (ie thigh or stomach)
  • Eat a meal & hydrate
  • Drink a little more water. Dehydration will stop revolution in its tracks.
  • Take care of your body
  • Take your meds, put on sunscreen
  • Wear comfy clothes & shoes
  • Do NOT wear synthetics or polyester, they can melt to your skin of they get too hot
  • Choose a meeting place in case you get separated from your group

When you go out remember:

  • A buddy! -- Never go out alone
  • A mask
  • Safety goggles
  • A helmet (bike helmets work!)
  • Snacks
  • Water -- Pack twice as much as you think you’ll need or have a plan to refill
  • Squirt top water bottle for eye flushes
  • Umbrella for protection from rain & pepper spray
  • Portable charger & phone cord

When you get home:

  • Rest!
