Description

Poster reading:
"How To Be A White OR Non-Black Ally At A Rally
Amplify Black Voices. Don't Lead Chants.
Make space for Black folks to lead chants.
Don't Post Photos/Videos/IGLive With Protesters' Faces
Protesters will face repercussions if they are identified, so blur faces and only document encounters with law enforcement.
Be A Physical Barrier
Use your body and your privilege to create distance between Black people and the police. The police are less likely to harm you.
Don't Provoke Or Antagonize The Police
Black folks will face much harsher retaliation than you from police.
Don't Police Or Tone Down Black Protesters
If Someone Is Getting Arrested, Ask Their Name & Birthdate
Share this info with organizers so they can be bailed out.
Stay On Message
Don't use a BLM protest to push another agenda or cause.
Donate At Massbailout.com."

From the contributor: "My wife and I went downtown to photograph the protest art as we knew that it would not last (for a variety of reasons). The military was still on the streets, a curfew was still in place, and police were still assaulting innocent protestors. Columbus is the capitol of Ohio, so much of this was around the capitol building."
