PCJF Executive Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard delivers powerful testimony in front of the Washington D.C. Council, Committee on Judiciary & Public Safety, in defense of the right of people to protest peacefully without fear of being unjustly arrested, and against the appointment of Peter Newsham as DC Metropolitan Police Chief. Newsham's record, from the mass arrests in Pershing Park to most recently at the Trump Inauguration protests, demonstrates a contempt for that right. This is Mara's complete 5-minute testimony plus nine minutes of responses to questions from Council members.
