TUPOCC Meeting & Happy Hour

April 23, 2010

The United People of Color Caucus (TUPOCC) of the National Lawyer's Guild (NLG) is an alliance of law students, legal workers, attorneys and other people of color within the NLG community. Membership is open to those who self-identify as people of color. Please join us for our first mixer happy hour of the year.

We'll be gathering as legal activists of color for a community building meeting at 5:00pm. The event will then be open to everyone at 6:00pm. We encourage you to bring your friends, see you there!

NLG-TUPOCC Happy Hour @ Somar

Time: 5:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Somar Bar www.somarbar.com
Street: 1727 Telegraph Ave.
City/Town: Oakland, CA

The necessity of an organization like TUPOCC is borne from the historical context of the capitalist United States where economic prowess is dependent on the furthered and continued subjugation of people of color, women, the poor, queers and other oppressed people. We are dedicated to fostering and supporting the growth and empowerment of all people of color, particularly within the organization of the NLG.

Membership is open to all members of the NLG community who self-identify as people of color. There will be no arbitrary exclusion from membership on the basis of sexuality, religion, gender, gender presentation or identity, sexual orientation, disability or age.
