2012 NLG Midwest Regional Conference

2012 NLG Midwest Regional Conference:

Now’s the Time!

Rising Up for Human Rights


Save the date — March 23 to March 25!  Join the Midwest region of the National Lawyers Guild for our annual conference in Chicago, hosted by Chicago-Kent NLG.  Join the NLG Chicago Chapter and others from the Midwest as we gather together to reflect, learn, catch up, and recharge.

This year we will be focusing on the timely issues of mass incarceration, immigration, continued attacks on workers’ rights, protest, and more! There will be informative panels as well as a choice of practical workshops in the afternoon.  More than ever it is time for us to come together and rise up as basic human rights are being attacked.
