If you’re seeking NLG chapter protest arrest hotlines or other mass defense support, visit NLG Chapters are organized into regions. Click on a region below to see the local chapters and their contact information. What are Chapters? Chapters are run by volunteer members like yourself! Though it varies, the majority of chapters focus on mass defense efforts like legal observing and providing “Know Your Rights” trainings, running jail support hotlines, and finding representation for protesters. Some chapters are a lot more active than others, and some have vibrant local committees outside of mass defense. Many times a chapter can be very active for a period and then become dormant for the next.  Our largest and most active chapters are our “Staffed Chapters” of NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Michigan, and Massachusetts. If you would like to hear more about getting involved in a particular chapter as a member, reach out using the contact information listed. If you do and do not hear back within a few days, email the National Membership Director at Interested in becoming more involved with the NLG but don’t have a chapter near you?
