Support Apple's encryption fight by attending a rally near you on Feb. 23

If you want to publicly voice your support for Apple in its ongoing encryption dispute with the FBI, you might be interested in attending one of a slew of rallies being planned at Apple stores around the world on February 23.

Advocacy group Fight for the Future is helping to organize the rallies, which are planned to be held at Apple stores in more than 40 cities on Tuesday, February 23 at 5:30 p.m. local time. In addition, Fight for the Future says that those in Washington, DC can attend a protest at the FBI's headquarters at the same time. Protestors will hold 10-foot long banners and iPhone-shaped signs that read "FBI: Don't Break Our Phones" and "Secure Phones Save Lives."

If you're interested in joining in on one of the rallies, you can find more information on the event at Fight for the Future's hub site, including the full list of participating cities, sign resources and more.
