Our Legal Cafes often pair advice sessions with a "teach-in." Teach-ins are practical, participatory, and action oriented discussions around food, housing, livelihoods, transportation, and more! Through these trainings and guided discussions on specific legal issues, the Law Center hopes to inform and empower our communities towards resiliency.
Got a Teach-In Idea? Don't be shy! We're always looking to host conversations that are relevant to our communities, even if the topic isn't legal in nature. We want to hold space to discuss how we would navigate the thorny issues of an economy that is owned, controlled, and benefit our communities, and how we can get there! Feel free to email our Legal Cafe Teach-in Coordinator, Tia Katrina Taruc-Myers, at email@example.com with your ideas and suggestions.
Check out our upcoming teach-ins below!
