July 31: Invitation for Lawyers to Join Law for Black Lives, NYC
#Law4BlackLives is a national gathering of lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jailhouse lawyers who are committed to building a world where #BlackLivesMatter. More than a meeting or a conference, this gathering is a call to action for legal advocates from diverse parts of the country to join together and spend a day dreaming about how we can support the growing Movement For Black Lives.
This space will prioritize the voices and leadership of people of color, most importantly Black lawyers and legal advocates.
REGISTER TODAY at law4blacklives.org. Space is limited. Limited travel and registration scholarships will be available.
