Abstract In July 2016, Color of Change (COC) and CCR filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request seeking information from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on the surveillance and monitoring of Movement for Black Lives (MBL) protestors and organizers exercising their First Amendment constitutional rights at protests across the country. The request was specifically directed at the monitoring of protest activity whose subject matter or theme involved police violence, criminal justice, racial inequities, or MBL. The request follows the many instances over the past two years of military and counterterror resources being used to surveil MBL protests as well as first-hand accounts of surveillance of protests and activists.
