Suzanne Rivera doubles down on pledge to financially assist students arrested over civil disobedience in the Twin Cities area in aftermath of Election Day.
"I care deeply about care about both the wellbeing of our students and their right to practice civil disobedience", Rivera said Thursday over social media.
Rivera added that any current student arrested who needs help from a bail or fine should feel free to contact her to request reimbursement.
Rivera gave further explanation to local media that she wants to defend free speech to anyone regardless of which side they are on. More than 600 people in an anti-Trump protest were arrested for temporarily blocking interstate traffic near downtown Minneapolis.
