Committee Against Torture Meeting

August 12, 2008

Our next Committee Against Torture meeting will be on Tuesday, August 12 at 6 PM, 2140 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley CA, Suite 601.

Torture as an acceptable interrogation technique is increasingly defended by political and legal figures in positions of power. The NLG maintains what most scholars and human rights activists maintain, that torture is immoral and illegal. Join us for our next committee meeting to organize against torture and its defenders.

NLG Queer Committee Supports HRC Dinner Protesters

SAN FRANCISCO - The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter National Lawyers Guild Queer Committee supports the "Left Out Party" where people will protest the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) San Francisco Bay Area Gala because of its failure to support the rights of transgender individuals.

The Queer Committee disagrees with HRC's decision to continue its support of the Federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) after protections for transgender employees were stripped from the bill.
