Nyla at Alt. Law Day

News | October 8th, 2004

For all who are interested, there will be a conference tomorrow (quoted from nlg.org):

“Join us for the 36th Annual Progressive Lawyering Day (formerly Alternative Law Day), from 9:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday, October 9, 2004. Organized by the Bay Area law school student chapters of the National Lawyers Guild, law students, attorneys, legal workers, and activists will gather at the University of San Francisco School of Law, located at Fulton and Shrader Streets, to discuss progressive lawyering and public interest law under the theme “Reclaiming Democracy.

Supervisor Matt Gonzalez, President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, will deliver the keynote address with an introduction from San Francisco Police Commissioner Peter Keane. This day-long symposium will cover issues including civil rights, prisoner’s rights, sex and the law, military law, combatting international violence against women, the significance of Brown v. Board of Education, and the implementation of San Francisco’s “Care Not Cash” program, plus many more. The symposium will be followed at 4:30pm by a beer and wine reception, including a performance by Nyla from Justice NOW!”

Nyla, of course, is a part of “The We That Sets Us Free,” of which I did the sound design. Also present will be one of the co-directors of Justice Now, Tre, an artist also on the CD, as well as numerous others. Please join us if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area.
