Legal and Tactical Guide: Palestinian Human Rights Advocacy in the U.S.

This guide helps activists to identify potential legal issues and how they might be approached, and it also provides basic information about individual rights in a given situation. It includes sections on First Amendment rights and common ways that free speech rights are infringed, issues specific to campus activism, potential criminal charges arising from rights activism, and legal issues around boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns.  

The Palestine Solidarity Legal Support (PSLS) - an initiative of the National Lawyers Guild, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and other organizations - helps to protect and advance the constitutional rights of Palestinian rights activists across the U.S. PSLS assists activists by providing legal advice and representation, developing resources for activists and lawyers involved in this work, and providing litigation and advocacy support to the movement for Palestinian human rights and its supporters.
