NLG Progressive Lawyering Day—September 15

Progressive Lawyering Day is an annual FREE conference organized by Bay Area NLG students to spark interest in public interest and radical lawyering and keep Bay Area leftist students networked. This year's PLD will happen on September 15 at GGU 536 Mission St. in San francisco, 9am - 5:30 pm. Attorney and advocate, Banafsheh Akhlaghi, founder and president of the National Legal Sanctuary for Community Advancement will give the keynote address. This year we have panels and workshops on environmental justice, immigrant rights, challenging white privilege in the legal community, critical legal studies, transgender people and the law, legal observing at demonstrations, police accountability, prisons, and more. The event is free and open to all. Food and beverages will be provided. The day long conference will end with a reception with a DJ and much cheer. Everyone is Welcome-you don't have to be at all involved in law to participate.
