KNOW YOUR RIGHTS:
ARTISTS & CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE
a FREE workshop presented by CCI and LACE

04.12.17 7PM

More and more artists are driven to use their artworks, actions and voices to defend their beliefs and lifestyles. Whether protesting with a group, or performing acts of civil disobedience, it is critical that artists understand their rights. Representatives from the National Lawyers Guild will help you understand best practices when you are confronted by police, potential consequences of civil disobedience actions, and other legal issues.

This workshop will provide a safe space for participants to discuss their experiences and ask questions of experts in the field. Presenters include Civil Rights Attorney and NLG Board Member Colleen Flynn and Civil Rights and Criminal Attorney John Raphling.

In the gallery, "I can call this progress to halt" (curated by Suzy Halajian) considers gestures of protest, unrest, and incendiary exchange as the starting point to a conversation. Learn more at http://welcometolace.org.

WHEN:

About the National Lawyers Guild:

The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) was founded in 1937 as the country's first racially-integrated bar association of progressive lawyers and jurists who believed that they had a major role to play in the reconstruction of legal values to emphasize human rights over property rights. The Guild is the oldest and most extensive network of public interest and human rights activists working within the legal system.

Our aim is to bring together all those who recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the rights of workers, women, LGBTQ people, farmers, people with disabilities and people of color, upon whom the welfare of the entire nation depends; who seek actively to eliminate racism; who work to maintain and protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them; and who look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their repression.
