Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a member?
While any non-management legal services worker can join the listserv and attend general LWRF meetings, we also have a community of members.
You can become a member if you agree to our shared organizing principles and pay annual dues of $20. We ask that you join us for a few meetings before signing on to our principles so you have a sense of what we’re about and the type of organizing we’re doing.
When do you have meetings?
Meetings are held the first Thursday of every month from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm over Zoom. Political education reading groups are occasionally held on the 3rd Thursday of every month.
What are you working on right now?
Currently we are organizing around issues created by the COVID-19 pandemic such as the cancel rent campaign, the “virtual re-opening” of the courts, and being in solidarity with organizations working to free people who are incarcerated. You can find the LWRF COVID-19 statement on our home page. As mentioned above, we are also examining the ways in which the nonprofit industrial complex affects radical organizing and the role we play as employees of nonprofits in our bi-weekly reading group.
