Event Image Legal Observer Training
12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Law Students, Faculty, and Community Legal Workers Welcome! At this training taught by the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), learn how to support local activists by becoming a trained legal observer (LO). The neon green caps of National Lawyers Guild LOs are a fixture at nearly every protest - LOs have been on the scene at actions from civil rights demonstrations in the 1960’s to #BlackLivesMatter protests in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square and alongside the people of the Standing Rock Reservation as they oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline #DAPL. Legal Observer training gives you an understanding of the legal issues that often arise out of mass actions and how to be an effective on-the-ground force defending people's rights. The NLG Legal Observer (LO) program was established in 1968 in NYC in response to protests at Columbia University and city-wide antiwar and civil rights demonstrations. The NLG LO program is part of a comprehensive system of legal support designed to enable people to express their political views as fully as possible without unconstitutional disruption. LOs are typically law students, legal workers and lawyers.
Big Life Plan
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

*WU Campus

This is a six-week workshop exploring the question, “What should I do with my life?” Group Big Life Plan sessions help students identify what they love to do, what they are good at, how to articulate these things, and how they can apply to the world. We seek to create a means for students to directly impact their community, work, family, etc., both now and in the future. Come join other students pursuing these questions and work on your Big Life Plan – the 6-week workshop that will help you identify, refine, and articulate your plans for your life. BLP workshops are free, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Register Here:
