LAW FOR BLACK LIVES

Law For Black Lives  is a national  network of radical lawyers, law students, and legal workers of color committed to building the power of the Black Lives Matter movement. Formed out of the uprisings in Ferguson & Baltimore, we use the law to embolden, defend and protect the growing movement for Black liberation.  L4BL started in 2015, as a 2-day convening organized by Center for Constitutional Rights along with a steering committee of visionary legal thinkers. The success of the convening made it clear that the time is now to build a legal arm for the movement for Black lives.

We Are Going On Tour Y'all! 

Starting next month we are embarking on a 12 city tour. We are meeting with L4BL members, organizers and local legal formations who are doing dope work in their city. We are spending 2-3 days in each location, where we will conduct movement lawyering trainings, help assess the gaps and strengths of the movement legal infrastructure and document some best practices around movement lawyering. We will be hosting public events that lift up local work and offer trainings around transformational policy. Stay tuned!

We will be announcing the dates and registration information in the weeks to come.
