At 1 PM (EST) on Friday, Feb. 17 (#F17), #LawStrikesBack! Lawyers, legal workers, law students, paralegals, court interpreters, investigators, social service advocates, and others who work in the courts will gather in front of courthouses across the country in coordination with the nationwide #GeneralStrike planned for the same day. We are asking NLG members and chapters to start planning a local action in your area! Let the National Office know if your chapter is planning an event so we can help publicize.
This is an opportunity for the legal community to express our solidarity with the growing movements against the new regime and its white supremacist agenda. Engage your local community! Invite speakers, make signs, and share with your legal colleagues and allies!
If your legal organization would like to co-sponsor this event, please email NLG Director of Research and Education Traci Yoder at email@example.com.
