On August 27, 2020, the National Lawyers Guild Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Committee and Environmental Human Rights Committee organized the fourth event in their webinar series, “Movement Lawyering and Working with Indigenous Communities,” hosted by Natali Segovia, co-chair of the IPRC.
The speakers during the event were Julianna Repp, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, and Pat Handlin.
Lawyers who were part of the legal efforts at Standing Rock discussed the challenges and lessons learned from working within a movement space that was/is indigenous-led.
