Please join the ACLU of Washington, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Davis Wright Tremaine, and the Middle Eastern Legal Association of Washington for a 4-credit CLE “Training for Pro Bono Attorney Accompanying Clients on FBI Interviews.”
We did not learn this history in school. Robinson will discuss how Confederate monuments came to adorn our country and what it means that they still stand today. We MUST face the truth of our history to chart a course forward.
The ACLU of Washington’s Homeless Advocacy Toolkit is a set of resources to assist local advocacy efforts against the criminalization of homelessness by municipal governments across Washington. This Toolkit includes template letters, primers on important cases, and sets of talking points on (1) anti-panhandling ordinances (2) the criminalization of camping and (3) sweeps of encampments by city officials. Also included are copies of court decisions and secondary sources on these same issues. While we hope these resources are helpful for advocates combating unjust policies and practices affecting unhoused persons, please note that nothing contained in these materials constitutes legal advice by the ACLU-WA.
The ACLU-WA would like to thank the Homeless Rights Advocacy Project of Seattle University School of Law. Much of this toolkit was possible due to the resources and scholarship made available through HRAP’s work for the rights of Washington’s homeless residents.
