Dear NLG Family,
Thank you all so much for being a part of the first ever, all digital #Law4thePeople convention!
Although we couldn’t be together in person, these past two weeks have been a wonderful opportunity to build, reflect, and strategize on moving forward in our work to fight for a better world. Thanks to your participation and engagement, over the course of this digital gathering, our community included nearly 1,000 people around the country—and the world. A huge thank you to all our members and guest speakers, honorees, and panelists who helped organize each and every event!
A special thank you to LearningTimes which donated countless hours of their time to helping make this digital gathering a success, and to the captioners and interpreters who helped make this convention more accessible.
Here is a recap of videos from three of our biggest events! More video recordings of sessions will be circulated to attendees in the coming days.
- Keeanga Yamahtta-Taylor: Keynote Speech
- Walter and Boots Riley: A Father-Son Discussion on the Political Moment, Moderated by Barbara Ransby
- The Road to Abolition: Honoring Dr. Angela Davis
In the meantime, please feel free to share your favorite moments from the Convention on social media using #Law4thePeople and tagging us on the following accounts:
Sending love, light, solidarity, and much gratitude,
