Campus Protest Solidarity Statement

CDP is a member of the Protect the Protest task force (PTP), a coalition of organizations dedicated to defending people and groups who advocate for justice and face legal retaliation, including SLAPP lawsuits, as a result. PTP recently issued a statement in solidarity with the student-led Gaza protests that have taken place across the country this spring.

The statement explains the historical significance of the protests, the actionableness of the students’ demands, the disproportionate harshness of the response by school administrators and law enforcement, and the legal framework that must be upheld to protect the rights of the protesters.
