Eugene, OR — Today is a historic moment for climate activists in the U.S. The Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld a lower trial court’s ruling that will allow four climate activists to provide evidence of the necessity of their actions to a jury of their peers.
CLDC attorneys, Lauren Regan & Cooper Brinson, arrived at the Sacred Stone camp today to provide additional legal support to the movement in North Dakota. They will be at the camp for a week and we will be making regular trips back every month to provide legal support.
We will be host our first annual "Theater of Dissent" on Thursday, October, 27th. Theater of dissent is a dinner theater/mock trial benefit dinner.
We couldn't wait any longer to expand our legal team and right now we have an opportunity to permanently fund two new attorney positions. In October we brought on two new staff attorneys, who have both been working with us as law clerks for years.
