ACLU Tells Trump Resistance: 'We'll Do Work in Courts, You Do Work in Streets'

posted by Justice & Drew - 

From Fox News Insider:

The American Civil Liberties Union hosted a nationwide training session where it emphasized the legal rights of Americans to protest the Trump administration.

"We will bring all the lawsuits necessary to defend these rights. ... We'll do the work in the courts. You do the work in the streets," ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero told the audience in Miami. 

Romero said the organization is focused on defending the rights of immigrants and LGBTQ Americans, along with preserving First Amendment protections and women's reproductive rights.

Saturday's event, which was live-streamed online, was called "The Resistance Training," where people were urged to organize public protests in their own areas.

Watch the discussion from 'Outnumbered' here:

Want to do something about our current political climate but don't know how? Tune in to the @ACLU_Nationwide's live stream launch of People Power today at 5pm EST: https://aclufl.org/ResistanceTrainingRSVP I'm so honored (and terrified!) to be speaking at today's town hall. ✊🏽
