Webinar: Lessons on Civil Disobedience from Modern Environmental Justice Movements

Please join us and the National Lawyers Guild on Thursday, November 9th for a conversation about the use of civil disobedience over the past decade of environmental activism. From pipeline protests to tree-sits to construction sites, activists have engaged in creative methods to disrupt projects causing environmental destruction. Learn from attorneys and organizers about the role of civil disobedience tactics in recent movement history, rights and risks associated with such actions, and the importance of solidarity.

The presenters will be Kira Kelley (CDP staff attorney), Claire Glenn (CDP staff attorney), Ayeola Omolara Kaplan (a Black and queer Atlanta based pop-surrealist painter), and Xavier T. de Janon (attorney and organizer) as moderator.

The webinar will take place Thursday, November 9th from 6 – 7:30 PM ET / 3 – 4:30 PM PT via Zoom.
