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.
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.
