Movement Lawyering Conference
Movement Lawyering Conference: More Power; More Justice.
In celebration of our 20th anniversary, Advancement Project National Office along with cosponsors Law for Black Lives and the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center, hosted the inaugural Movement Lawyering Conference on October 16, 2019, in Washington, DC.
The conference was held to uplift the racial justice movement lawyering model that is used by Advancement Project National Office, Law For Black Lives and others. Movement lawyering is not just civil rights litigation, but rather a holistic strategy that centers and support the genius of ordinary people to attack systems and build long-term power.
