Direct actions, protests, and acts of civil disobedience are powerful tools for change. Participating in these
actions may also put you at risk of arrest and/or mistreatment by police and in jail. When participating in
direct actions, transgender people should understand their rights and take necessary precautions before
accepting the risk of arrest. If you are planning on attending a protest and you are not transgender, consider
what you can do to prevent mistreatment of transgender people and other vulnerable participants. From
identity documents to detainment procedures, this resource offers an overview of the considerations
transgender people should think about when preparing or participating in a direct action.
