Legal support includes tasks to do before and during an action as well as after arrests. The Legal Issues/Risking Arrest/Representing Yourself sections of the Handbook for Nonviolent Action include a helpful Legal Systems Flowchart which can be downloaded as a handout. Another version of the flowchart is here. Share information about legal rights, like National Lawyers Guild's Know Your Rights, and Know Your Rights: A Guide for Protesters
Action evaluation | This section allows us to learn from our experiences and is important to strengthen out campaigns.
Organizers should work with nonviolence trainers
Nonviolence training helps prepare participants for effective nonviolent actions.
Organizers + trainers need to work together to make sure that trainings meet the need of those being trained. See Tasks and Tools for organizing a training to prepare!
Match tactics for a specific action with the campaign objectives.
The Matrix exercise is a helpful tool when group has not fully decided on action plans.
The Cross spectrum can help a group determine what is effective nonviolent action and to develop a nonviolent action scenario.
The manuscript for the Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns (2014), which includes 50 additional pages, can be downloaded here, can be purchased in our Store, and all the sections are on Empowering Nonviolence along with other resources.
