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.
