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, ad many other front-line defenders. With the current administration, attacks on the environment, threats to at-risk communities, and direct action is more important than ever and this summer is likely to be full of direct actions in the north. 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!

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Ticket includes one free drink token additional drink tokens are $4. There will be beer, wine, pizza, and more food!
