Next Legal Observer Training:
Saturday, October 22, 2011
Loyola University New Orleans College of Law (room to be announced)
Julie Thibodeaux of ACLU Louisiana will be training legal observers.
Anyone who is interested may come, you do not need to be a law student or a lawyer!
Legal Observers observe and record the actions of the police and opponents of the protesters. Their presence helps ensure that the rights of the protesters are not violated while holding the police accountable for their actions.
This training will prepare you for future events such as the School of the America's Vigil/Protest in November and Mardi Gras Indians gatherings and upcoming Occupy NOLA events!
Skills credit will be available for Loyola Law students.
