National Lawyers Guild International Weekend
February 19-21, 2015
Exact Event Locations TBA!
The National Lawyers Guild will convene its International Weekend this year in Washington, DC! The International Weekend is an opportunity to learn about the Guild's international work around the world - from Latin America to Palestine to Turkey to Egypt to the Philippines and more - and domestically, where the Guild's International Committee and affiliated Subcommittees works on Environmental Human Rights, Indigenous Peoples' Rights, the human rights framework and holding the U.S. government accountable.
The International Weekend will include in-depth presentations on the current situation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, developments in Venezuela, and the U.S. relationship with Cuba. (Invited speakers will include representatives of Venezuela and Cuba in Washington.) It is also an opportunity for business meetings and strategy discussions to direct the future of the Guild's International work.
