Here at the BCCLA, our team has been hard at work to create The Arrest Handbook. The new and expanded Handbook will include major updates to changes in the legal landscape and new sections on heavily policed communities, mental health & involuntary treatment, and civil disobedience, protest, & Indigenous resistance. We can’t wait to share this widely expanded update of one of our most important public legal education tools when it is published this Fall.

In addition to The Arrest Handbook, we are creating The Arrest Pocketbook.

The Pocketbook will allow us to reach more people living in heavily policed communities.

Policing continues to disproportionately impact Indigenous, Black, and other racialized people, people who are unhoused, people with mental health challenges, people who use drugs, people who are HIV+, and gender diverse people.

We are raising funds to help put this Pocketbook into the hands of our community members.

Access to this material is crucial. Through the Pocketbook, we will connect thousands of people to vital information that will help protect them from infringements on their human rights and civil liberties.

We want to reach as many people as possible. But we can’t do this without your help. Be part of our community’s history. Please stand with us, and make a donation today.
