Attorney Kai Memmer, a volunteer for the Southwest Virginia Chapter of the National Lawyer’s Guild, will train attendees to become Legal Observers. Legal Observers are needed immediately in the Elliston VA area and other areas along the Mountain Valley Pipeline route to monitor and document interactions between police and protesters. The presence of Legal Observers serves to de-escalate tensions on both sides, and is a vital, neutral information gathering tool.
Volunteers are needed for any amount of time. Information on the National Lawyer’s Guild and the Legal Observer program: https://www.nlg.org/our-work/
Monday, Aug. 5 at 6pm at Rockfish Valley Community Center, 190 Rockfish School Ln, Afton 22920.
