Richmond Copwatch is a non-hierarchical organization dedicated to ending police abuse.

We are committed to anti-authoritarian principles and seek to transform the nature of the police and explore alternative methods of community conflict resolution.

Richmond Copwatch will be facilitating a Know Your Rights Workshop at the July Really Really Free Market at 1pm. The Really Really Free Market is at the corner of Main and Laurel streets in Monroe Park. It is always on the last Saturday of every month, so this event will be on July 30th.

This workshop will help participants learn the basics of asserting their rights when dealing with the police. We highly recommend this workshop for EVERYONE. But especially anyone who engages in any level of political protest or demonstrations.This workshop consists of skits that are performed by Copwatch members and then edited by participants from the audience. We encourage participation, questions, and dialogue around the topics covered in the skit. We are not lawyers, but we are able to provide useful information about a lot of legal questions.

The monthly really Really Free Market happens on the last Saturday of each month from noon until 3pm.  It is an alternative to the capitalist “free market” where everything actually is free. People come to share things they no longer need or want, share skills, share music, etc. You can find out more about the RRFM at rvaradicalendar.blogspot.com
