Thanks to support from members and allies like you, the NLG Foundation is investing in building the capacity of NLG chapters and committees across the country. We’ve been blown away by the important and creative projects happening throughout the NLG and are pleased to announce that we have awarded grants of up to $7,500 each to nine chapters and committees.
Whether it’s by providing critical resources, organizing and training legal activists, or improving internal engagement, each of these grantees exemplify an unwavering commitment to fighting unjust systems of economic, social, and political oppression.
