Tuesday August 22 at 7 p.m. at Berkeley Law, Rm 100, we will be hosting an Advanced Legal Observer training. This training is only for previously trained legal observers. If you have not been trained as a legal observer, please do not attend this training. We are scheduling LO trainings for new folks as we speak.
Advanced Legal Observer training! Sunday August 20th 3:30 pm NLG Office 558 Capp Street S.F. We are strongly recommending that you attend this training if you are going to be out in the streets over the weekend of the 26th and 27th. Lets keep ourselves safe as we do this vital work!
Also if you have some experience as an LO and could volunteer as an on site coordinator that day that would be great. On site coordinators will help with Lo’s buddying up that day and trying to keep all parts of the action covered. Thank You!
