About Us

The Contempt of Court Legal Clinic is a project by and for people active in social movements. Our goal is to support people facing legal repression as a result of actions that share an affinity with our political principles. Our project is based on solidarity and we intend to complement existing legal support initiatives. We recognize the legal skills and experience of people engaged in social struggles. We want to share our experience of the justice system, both theoretical and lived, in the context of monthly or bimonthly clinics, through individual support, and through events like workshops on particular infractions or accusations. Our objective is to contribute to building enduring power in relation to the justice system. If you are facing charges, if you want to respond to state violence in the courts, or if you want to share your experiences and offer support, you’re welcome to join us!
