Black Movement Law Project Training to Support Detroit Movements

On January 30, 2016, Good Jobs Now is partnering with the National Conference of Black Lawyers (NCBL) Michigan chapter to 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. 

This training is open to lawyers, legal workers, law students, and community organizers. The target audience is Black people and people of color who will benefit from specialized training on how to legal observe as someone who is disproportionately targeted by racialized police violence. 

Co-sponsored by: National Conference of Black Lawyers - Michigan, Black Movement Law Project, Good Jobs Now, and others (list in formation)
