Critical Resistance to open legal clinic in New Orleans

On June 27th, CR's first legal clinic is opening its doors in New Orleans. The clinic will begin with a focus on helping former prisoners expunge their records, and file police complaint forms.

As CR gets going, we're also planning Community Legal Institutes to further discuss and share strategies for navigating the legal system in a way that helps keep ourselves and our neighbors safe, that prevents harm from happening in the first place, and moves us all towards abolition.

The Clinic is going to be open 1 Saturday/month, and they need volunteers! We are looking for dedicated community advocates we can train to staff the clinic.
