Documenting Protests


Register by 11:30AM ET the morning of. Free / Suggested Donation.

In solidarity with those fighting for justice during Black Lives Matter protests, DCTV is offering this workshop for free or suggested donation as a resource for ensuring the protection of protesters and supporting BIPOC filmmakers to tell their own stories. This session will be a conversation moderated by Chloe Gbai (TFI, Meerkat Media), featuring Emerson Sykes (ACLU) and filmmakers Michael Premo and Princess Hairston. All participants are invited to share experiences, ask questions, and join in the discussion. In the face of COVID-19 and under a threat of physical violence, topics will include preparation, filming techniques, and most importantly, how to keep yourself and fellow protesters safe.

Note that we will be recording this to make it available as a resource to the public. If you would like to keep your privacy during the webinar, you will be able to ask questions anonymously via chat.
