A party and fundraiser in honor of May Day and in commemoration of what is known as International Workers Day. The event will feature musicians, performers, artists, and speakers on the theme of May Day, racial justice, immigration, and workers. There will be DJs, dancing, beer, and kombucha on tap. Raffles for great prizes from local businesses and organizations throughout the night.
Proceeds from the event go to the United People of Color Caucus (TUPOCC). TUPOCC was founded in 2005 by a small group of diverse NLG law students of color. We are dedicated to fostering and supporting the growth and empowerment of all people of color, and particularly legal activists of color inside and outside of the NLG. We believe that an injury to one is an injury to all, and to this end, believe all forms of oppression need to be dismantled before any of us can reach true liberation. Since 2005, we’ve grown to hundreds of members.
The NLG was founded in 1937 as an association of progressive lawyers created as an organization working in the service of the people and committed to the concept that human rights are more sacred than property interests.
A slight modification, this is actually in the Space Lounge located at Saturn Cafe. There is a separate entrance from the main restaurant. Location is wheelchair accessible.
