Help support the NLG-NYC’s Anti-Racism Committee’s (ARC) fundraising initiative for the Student, Recent Grad and Legal Worker of Color Travel Stipend to the NLG’s National Convention in October 2011.
NLG-NYC ARC works to further the Guild’s commitment to racial justice. Fundraising for the travel stipend is an important component of anti-racist work in the Guild because it promotes the legal education, viewpoints, and work of people of color within our membership and programs as well as the radical community at large.
The Fundraising Party will be held on Thursday, July 28, from 6:00pm to 10:00pm, at Berry Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn! The suggested donation is $10 – $250. Donations will be accepted by credit card, cash or check.
If you are unable to attend, please help support the next generation of students, lawyers, and legal workers of color by donating and encouraging friends and colleagues to donate what they can and spread the word to others. Make an online donation!
Join the NLG-NYC Next Gen Mentorship Project members on Wednesday, June 1st to thank its founding members and welcome future participants to the program.

The Mentorship Project will be restarted in the fall of 2011 to coincide with the start of the school year. Mentors are needed to revamp the program, so please sign up! In the future, the Project’s coordinators will organize quarterly meet-ups and keep all mentors and mentees on a September – June schedule.
