Attention Bay Area Activists and Organizers: The New NLG Hotline System, 415-909-4NLG and 415-285-1011

The New NLG Hotline System

The San Francisco Bay Area NLG Demonstrations committee has a new phone system! After our hotline came under attack by members of the alt-right and fascist movement last fall, we needed to upgrade our security to our phone lines. In September we limited the capacity of our legal support line - 415-285-1011 - to only take calls from local jails. Other incoming calls will not connect but sound like the caller gets a busy signal. That will remain the same.
