Joining with a coalition of Georgia journalism organizations, the First Amendment Clinic condemns the detainment of freelance journalist Haisten Willis and Atlanta Journal-Constitution staff photographer Alyssa Pointer during May 31 and June 1, 2020 protests in Atlanta.  The Clinic has prepared a “Know Your Rights” document for journalists reporting on protests that provides information on how to prepare, how to respond and what to expect in the event of being stopped or arrested by police.
