Legal Observers work to insure that protesters' right to express their political views are not violated by law enforcement. They do not participate in protests or actions, instead documenting law enforcements' interactions with protesters. We need LOs now more than ever.
Get trained by civil rights attorney EmilyRose Johns, connect with other students and legal observers, and learn how you can put your legal knowledge to work to protect freedom of assembly and expression.
About Legal Observers:
Legal Observers are a program of the National Lawyers Guild, the nation's oldest and largest progressive bar association. Learn more about the San Francisco chapter of the NLG at http://www.nlgsf.org/. Trainings are open to anyone who does not work for law enforcement; no legal background necessary.
Childcare: If you need childcare during the event please email kids AT omnicommons DOT org
Accessibility: The building is wheelchair-accessible on the ground floor, with a wheelchair lift to the ballroom from the entrance hall, and a currently usable but incomplete wheelchair-accessible bathroom that we aim to have finished by early next year.
Please email organize AT omnicommons DOT org with questions.
