Call for 2020 Convention Programming

Call for Proposals: Major Panels and Workshops
DEADLINE: July 1, 2020

The NLG 2020 Law for the People Convention will be held digitally from Monday, September 21-Sunday, October 4. Unlike our usual five-day format, we’re spreading out events over two weeks to allow participants across multiple time zones to attend as many events as possible. Even if attendees aren’t available to join every event live in real time, registrants will be able to access video recordings of programming to watch and engage with at their convenience.

We are currently seeking proposals for Major Panels and Workshops. Major Panel applications not accepted will be automatically considered for workshop slots. Major Panels are 90 minutes long and fewer in number than workshops (60 minutes). Both major panels and workshops will be scheduled on weekday evenings or the weekend of October 3-4.

Please consider applying and forward widely! We encourage NLG members, committees, and entities to coordinate with allied organizations/activists in submitting proposals. If you have any questions about convention programming or the selection process, please email Traci Yoder at

NOTE: Major panel and workshop proposals are open to NLG members only. To join the NLG, visit
