About this event

This event is provided by Civil Liberties Defense Center

The Civil Liberties Defense Center is a nonprofit law firm specializing in
defending grassroots climate/environmental justice and social change
activists. Our projects educate people about their rights, defend front-line
activists from corporate/state aggression, and expose and confront the
persistent erosion of our civil liberties.

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.

Join us for a night of comedy, music, and fun at CLDC’s Summer of Resistance!
The night will be hosted by Portland comedian Bonesaw featuring comedy from:
Chris Johnson, Wendy Weiss, Christian Ricketts, & Jay Shingle and live music
by Tom Dandelion & the Fresh Fruits!
