Currently we are representing dozens of Standing Rock Water Protectors, the valve turners who shut down the 5 pipelines bringing Canadian tar sands into the US, the 52 Break Free defendants from the Break Free action in 2016, and many other front-line defenders. With the current administration and the climate emergency the need for direct action is more important than ever. Come support our work defending front-line activists in the northwest & across the country!

Our Executive Director, Lauren Regan, will be giving an update on the cases & projects we are working on and introducing our newest staff member, Erin Grady.
