This year, the National Conference of Black Lawyers celebrates 48 years of service to our community, advancing crucial human rights and justice issues! We are hard at work planning NCBL’s upcoming October 6-9, 2016 National Conference in Chicago, Illinois and excited about the important legal education series we are presenting here, the NCBL Law Enforcement Accountability Project (LEAP).

Black Movement Law Project Training to Support Detroit Movements

On January 30, 2016, the National Conference of Black Lawyers (NCBL) Michigan chapter will host Black Movement-Law Project trainers for back-to-back sessions on Legal Observing (with a special emphasis on race, power & privilege) and Jail Support. BMLP has worked in Ferguson, Baltimore, Cleveland and throughout the country to support communities as they demonstrate against police brutality and systemic racism. We hope this training and meeting will serve to build ties between lawyers, legal workers, and organizers in Detroit, and to catalyze stronger legal infrastructure and movement-building in the city.
