Please consider attending the Jail Support or Legal Observer trainings taking place this Sunday, May 17th in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, and particularly Madison's Young Gifted and Black Coalition.
Training will take place at UW-Law School 975 Bascom Mall, Room 3260 Madison, WI
1-3pm: Jail Support 101 training by Chicago Action Medical (street medics). Anyone can do jail support! Participants will share their own experiences and learn how to support protesters in preparing for the possibility of arrest, advocate for people who have health needs in jail, track arrested people through the legal system, care for handcuff injuries and support arrestees as they are released.
3-5pm: Legal observer training by National Lawyers Guild Chicago, NLG Chicago Legal Observer Program. Learn how to monitor, record, and hopefully deter police and government misconduct during events and protests. This interactive training will cover all aspects of effective legal observing and include information on local laws.
Both trainings open to all community members, activists, law students, legal workers, and lawyers. If you are looking for a skillset to contribute to the movement, come to one or both of these free trainings!
Trainings are organized by the law student NLG chapter and Madison Nlg. RSVP at event Facebook site.
