    End of Campaign Happy Hour

    In springtime, the only pretty ring time, birds sing hey ding, a-ding, a-ding. Sweet lovers love the spring.

    We have a lot to celebrate this June! Join us on June 7th for the Law Center's Spring Membership Campaign Celebration and New Office Open House! We'll be celebrating the (successful) end of our month-long grassroots fundraising campaign and breaking in our new spot in downtown Oakland.

    That's right, we're moved! And we need you to help us make the new office our new home, so we'll be doing some participatory art and bringing together our community, the Bay Area's solidarity economy legal professionals, urban gardeners, public interest law students, social justice advocates, and more! If you're a friend, fan, volunteer, member, or an attorney looking to build your network of resilience minded legal professionals, join us!

    Sustainable Economies Law Center!
