Dan Aymar-Blair, The Article 20 Network

Date grant awarded: 2/15/2017

The freedom of peaceful assembly is collapsing under the pressure of prior restraints, shrinking public spaces, misinformation, and outright violence. As a result, Dan Aymar-Blair founded the Article 20 Network to stop the collapse. The Article 20 Network defends and advances the human right to freedom of peaceful assembly worldwide. Their work begins with the creation of the first free online knowledge library devoted solely to the peaceful assembly.

The project will provide resources for community leaders (teachers, ministers of faith, and city councils) to engage their communities about this human right vital to democracy and civil society.
