National Lawyers Guild

Rhode Island Chapter


About NLG-RI

The National Lawyers Guild is the largest progressive bar association in the United States. It was the first racially-integrated bar association and has remained dedicated to uniting lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jailhouse lawyers in the struggle to elevate human rights over property rights. Members of the Guild have worked through the past 75 years to support groups struggling to end oppression and change the political and economic systems of the United States.

In Rhode Island, we've provided legal observers for actions in Providence, connected folks arrested during demonstrations with legal representation, and hosted events highlighting the work of radical and progressive attorneys and legal workers here in Rhode Island.
