Due to excessive force by the police, at least 21 protestors were injured between January 2018 and July 2019 in Kenya. We are demanding change to ensure every Kenyan has their right to free assembly guaranteed. If you feel that protestors are unfairly depicted, you can add your voice to #FreeToProtest campaign. Here are a few easy ways for you to help create lasting progress for civil rights in Kenya.

Our campaign launches in early August, but we want to keep making noise about this integral topic until the end of October.

There is great power in numbers, and there is an unprecedented opportunity to join an impactful, and respectful movement that can shape the course of Kenyan history for the better. In working together, we can inspire a fairer Kenya to ensure all citizens are #FreeToProtest.

Tell us why you think it’s important to reclaim our constitutional right and to protest democratic human rights in Kenya!

Due to excessive force by the police, at least 21 protestors were injured between January 2018 and July 2019 in Kenya. We are demanding change to ensure every Kenyan has their right to free assembly guaranteed. If you are just as frustrated with the limitation of the right to protest, including unlawful arrests and undue violence, tell us why you support #FreeToProtest.

Our constitution is at risk. Our protestors are at risk. It’s about time we were all free from undue prosecution, free from harm from the authorities and #FreeToProtest.

Regardless of our income, our education, where we work and where we live - we should all be treated equally under the law. We should all be free from undue prosecution and we should all be #FreeToProtest.

Article 37 in our constitution guarantees our right to protest. That right is at risk. Take a stand. Join the conversation and share a photo of you displaying the #FreeToProtest hashtag.
