Who we are

The Article 20 Network was formed by activists whose personal experiences convinced them that, despite a blooming global protest movement, encroachments on and negative attitudes toward public demonstrations were threatening expression. 

The Article 20 Network defends and advances the human right to Freedom of Peaceful Assembly worldwide. 

Here's how.

The Article 20 Network calls attention to abridgments of and assaults on the freedom of assembly and fosters positive public attitudes toward assembly and its practitioners. 

The Article 20 Network is an organization with a unique and singular focus. We are concerned with the defense and advancement of one fundamental human right: The right of people to gather peacefully in a public forum to express a shared point of view—the freedom of assembly.

What do we want

We are seeking two current law school and/or graduate school students to join the Legal Services team. Under the supervision of the board and Legal Program Manager, the legal intern will work on a wide variety of issues as we grow our Legal Services Program. Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Conduct intake interviews with persons and/or organizations reaching out for assistance and information.
  • Compile data on the particular issues, for which, persons and/or organizations are contacting the Article 20 Network.
  • Conduct legal research on the international law, and domestic laws, on the human right to freedom of assembly to contribute to the Legal Compliance project. 
  • Research and write articles for our monthly newsletter and/or blog.
  • Assist with reaching out to the public and creating awareness via social media and other advocacy tools.
