In response to the nationwide demonstrations against police brutality, NYU’s First Amendment Watch has published a guide informing citizens of their right to record the police in public places.
Many millions of people now have the capability to document news in a way that only journalists and film crews could do in the past, and the videos they capture have played an important role in shedding light on police misconduct.
First Amendment Watch is an online news and educational resource designed for journalists, educators, students, and the general public. It is specifically designed to answer the need for impartial as well as timely information about First Amendment freedoms of speech, press, assembly, and petition.
