Happy Birthday, NLG! #NLG80

On February 20th, 1937, the National Lawyers Guild was born. At its founding convention, more than 600 legal professionals from across the country gathered to create the first racially integrated national bar association in the United States, that declared the organization’s mission as “…in the service of the people, to the end that human rights shall be regarded as more sacred than property interests.”

To help us celebrate all year long, please spread the word about the NLG on social media with #NLG80, and perhaps gift a Guild membership or make a contribution to the NLG.

We also hope you’ll join us in Washington, DC, August 2-6, for our 80th anniversary #Law4thePeople Convention at the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law!

A heartfelt thanks to our members and supporters you, for decades of hard work and support. Here’s to another 80 years of resistance!
