Your DGB for today is to download the ACLU Mobile Justice app for your state.
We all feel better knowing the ACLU is around, right? Well, with a focus on documenting police conduct, their app allows you to record video which is then sent automatically to your state’s ACLU affiliate. You can also report an incident through the app without video and access a state-specific list of your rights during law enforcement encounters. Take comfort in having the ACLU available to help at the touch of your screen.
So far, this app is available for 18 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and D.C., with a stop and frisk app available for New York. The ACLU will be adding more states soon, so if your state isn’t available yet, we suggest you set a monthly reminder in your phone to recheck the site for updates and follow your state’s ACLU on Twitter.
Add this app to your growing arsenal of activist tools for working towards social justice in your community.
