CALA PRESENTS AT REBLAW: "Beyond Boundaries: How Lawyers, Activists, and Communities Can Effectively Create Social Change Together"
CALA was honored to organize and present at the Rebellious Lawyering Conference last month at Yale Law School, even more so as we were able to do it with one of our community activist partners, Lulu Martinez of Enlace. RebLaw is the nation's largest student-run public interest conference. Every year the conference brings together practitioners, law students, and community activists from around the country to discuss innovative, progressive approaches to law and social change. Read more about the conference here.
Our panel, "Beyond Boundaries: How Lawyers, Activists, and Communities Can Effectively Create Social Change Together, also featured Melissa Sontag Broudo and Kate D'Adamo from the Sex Workers Project of the Urban Justice Center (the first legal clinic in the country dedicated to serving sex workers). It focused on the strategies, benefits, and challenges of lawyer-activist collaborations, with perspectives from both sides of these partnerships.
