Call for 2021 Convention Programming

Call for Proposals: Major Panels and Workshops
DEADLINE: June 15, 2021

The NLG 2021 Law for the People Convention will be held virtually October 11-17. Unlike our usual five-day format, we’re spreading out events over a full week 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 2 hours long and fewer in number than workshops (1.5 hours). Both major panels and workshops will be scheduled on weekday evenings or the weekend of October 16-17.

Please consider applying and forward widely! We are seeking new and innovative topics this year, and will be prioritizing proposals that do not repeat programming from the past few conventions. 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
